The Unfortunates by B. S. Johnson

This is a novel-in-a-box consisting of 27 loose-leaf sections to be read in any order, with the exception of the first and last sections only. The narrator is a football reporter sent to a Midlands city to cover a match. Because we read the workings of his mind, thinking and remembering with him, it becomes clear that the book could be presented in no other way.
B. S. Johnson was born in London.
