From the Oxford Companion to English Literature
JOHNSON, Bryan Stanley William (1933-73), London-born novelist whose works include Albert Angelo (1964), Trawl (1966), The Unfortunates (1969, consisting of 27 unbound sections in a box), House Mother Normal (1971), and Christy Malry's Own Double-Entry (1973). Johnson was an experimental novelist, an admirer of Joyce and Beckett, and his works combine verbal inventiveness with typographical innovations that resemble the techniques of concrete poetry, (black pages, diagrammatic type etc). He died by suicide.
