Recensioner i media
`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 `Outspoken and vivid.' Sunday Times `A refreshing originality.' Times Literary Supplement
Bloggat om Saturday Night and Sunday Morning
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.
