So what’s all this ‘Own Double Entry’ about then? It sounds a bit… well, mucky?
In BS Johnson’s novel “Christie Malry’s Own Double Entry”, the titular accounts clerk applies the principles of double entry book-keeping to what he sees as the world’s injustices.
In his ledger, he records each offence (or debit) against his freedoms and happiness, and then takes an action (or credit) of equivalent value to restore the equilibrium.
This is our double entry, and it is yours – time to balance the books, remittance due in full.
