About this title


'Birthday' is the long-awaited sequel to Alan Sillitoe's classic novel of the 1950s, 'Saturday Night And Sunday Morning'. Four decades on from the novel which was at the forefront of the new wave of British Literature, we re-discover the Seaton brothers: they are older, certainly; wiser--possibly not. Arthur and Brian Seaton, one with an ailing wife, one with an emotional knapsack of failure and success, are on their way to Jenny's 70th birthday party. Jenny and Brian had, a year ago, experimented with sex--semi-clothed, stealthy, with the bonus of fear. Arthur, of course, had cut a winning swathe through the married and unmarried women of Nottinghamshire. Life has changed. But there is still pleasure and still pain.

From the Publisher:

Four decades on from the widely praised Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, we rediscover the Seaton brothers. Older: certainly. Wiser: perhaps not. Arthur and Brian, one with an ailing wife, the other with an emotional knapsack of failure and success, are on their way to Jenny’s 70th birthday party. Brian and Jenny had years ago experimented with sex—semi–clothed, stealthy, with the added bonus of fear. Arthur, on the other hand, had cut a libidinous swathe through the female population of Nottinghamshire. Life has changed. So have the brothers, but not so much that they aren’t still recognizable from their old anarchic, authority–hating, idiosyncratic selves. A beautifully crafted novel by the author of The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.
