AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The main character of Brian Castro's fifth novel, Drift (1994), is a fictional double of British experimental novelist Bryan Stanley Johnson (1933-1973). The latter's presence in the novel, visible through Castro's exploration of Johnson's literary ideas, poses the question of the novel's relation to the essay. Drift can be regarded as a reflection on B. S. Johnson's literary ideas and on Tasmanian Aborigines by way of B. S. Johnson.' (34)
