About this title


Alan Sillitoe is best known for THE LONELINESS OF THE LONG DISTANCE RUNNER. In RAW MATERIAL we meet Sillitoe's impoverished Midlands forebearers and learn why Sillitoe believes family relationships are the basis of all security, love and perhaps all truth. For him, these relationships are the artistic "raw material" of his work; thus the family becomes not only the edifice of his life, but also grist for his mill.

Store Description

Our shop is located in downtown Waterbury, at the crossroads of Routes I84 and 8. All are welcome to visit, browse, and buy. Don't bother coming if you absolutely hate shops with full cafes, as some people do, but should you come make time to enjoy a fine lunch or at least a cup of our own Bookman's Blend Coffee. Check out our website; like us on Facebook; read our blog, mostly written by student interns. In short, support open shops wherever the heck you find them. Our retail hours are Mon. - Fri. 8 a.m. to 5. Holidays by chance, very slim chance (always call first!) Weekend hours are limited, though we offer a High Tea (yes, really) from 12-2 on Sat. and usually are around for a few hours before and after, for bookish types. Dealers are welcome anytime, of course.
