Albert Angelo is one of the most creative works from the creative mind of BS Johnson.
Alas, in the recent editions of this novel, the most important feature that garnered it so much attention when it was first published is missing. The holes that allowed readers to gaze ahead by a couple of pages are no more. This concrete foreshadowing is typical for Johnson, as he attempted to consider the structure and form of the novel from new perspectives.
This edition simply notes that the hole which used to appear in the book, is no longer there. I suppose it's due to rising publishing costs or somesuch. What a pity.
Otherwise, the book is clever, creative, imaginative and fun. As with most of BS Johnson's fiction, his real life, his narrative voice and his fictional characters all blend together as he tries to do away with the lies that are fiction.
And he makes it entertaining.
