Famous for his venturesome spirit and advocacy of a self-supporting existence, John Seymour was thus a natural and sympathetic editor for this remarkable book, first published in 1970, which offers the authentic voice of a Romany gypsy (a scrap metal merchant and horse trader) describing the life he has led and the longer lineage of his family. Silvester Gordon Boswell speaks of himself as one of the Boswells who have been on the road in England for generations, traveling the length of the land in a manner largely unhindered. The book documents the Boswell family tree and the nomadic Romany lifestyle, and forms an invaluable document of a culture. Boswell died in 1977 and his scrap metal yard was later turned into the Gordon Boswell Romany Museum by his son.

Elkin’s striking debut: The story of one man’s comic attempts at immortality James Boswell is a professional strongman and a wrestler. He is also a loveable leech who amasses friends of wealth and influence as his own insurance policy against death, an obsession that leads him from coast to coast, crashing parties and mentioning any celebrity whose name will grant him an ounce of social currency. But when those around him begin dying, Boswell is forced to confront his own mortality and determine once and for all how to find permanence in an ephemeral world. Poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, Boswell is Elkin’s engaging novel of one man’s desperate attempts to outmaneuver death, and an acerbic take on the follies of the American Dream. This ebook features rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate and from the Stanley Elkin archives at Washington University in St. Louis.

This complete and unabridged edition is the only complete critical edition in paperback. Samuel Johnson was a poet, essayist, dramatist, and pioneering lexicographer, but his continuing reputation depends less on his literary output than on the fortunate accident of finding an idealbiographer in James Boswell. As Johnson's constant and admiring companion, Boswell was able to record not only the outward events of his life, but also the humour, wit, and sturdy common sense of his conversation. His brilliant portrait of a major literary figure of the eighteenth century,enriched by historical and social detail, remains a monument to the art of biography.
