Working all day at a lathe leaves Arthur Seaton with energy to spare in the evenings. A hard-drinking, hard-fighting young rebel of a man, he knows what he wants and he's sharp enough to get it. And before long, his carryings-on with a couple of married women is local gossip. But then one evening he meets a young girl in a pub, and Arthur's life begins to look less simple. Allan Sillitoe's classic novel of the 1950's is a story of timeless significance. The film of the novel, starring Albert Finney, transformed British cinema and was much imitated. "That rarest of all finds: a genuine no-punches-pulled, unromanticised working class novel. Mr Sillitoe is a born writer, who knows his milieu and describes it with vivid, loving precision." - "Daily Telegraph". "His writing has real experience in it and an instinctive accuracy that never loses its touch. His book has a glow about it as though he had plugged it into some basic source of the working-class spirit." - "Guardian". "Miles nearer the real thing than D.H.Lawrence's mystic, brooding working-men ever came." - "Sunday Express". "Very outspoken and vivid." - "Sunday Times". "A refreshing originality." - "Times Literary Supplement".

About the Author:

Alan Sillitoe was born in 1928 and left school at 14 to work in various factories. He began writing after four years in the RAF, and lived for six years in France and Spain. His first stories were printed in the 'Nottingham Weekly Guardian'. In 1958 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' was published and 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner', which won the Hawthornden prize for Literature, came out the following year. Both these books were made into films.
