In post war Britiain a new writing style emerged from the bleak times. It was commonly known as kitchen sink drama. That sounds a little disrespectful now, perhaps, but these stories brought realism and raw emotion to their readers.

Stan Barstow's A Kind of Loving finds Vic Brown in a bleak Yorkshire industrial town, striving for maturity in his relationship with girlfriend Ingrid and her small-town ways. The story examines in great detail his feelings as the relationship develops.

Richard Huw perfectly captures the mood and the character in his reading. Download and start listening now!

    " Funny, touching, but just a little bit too bleak. "

    " I can empathise about having no home! A slice of gritty northern life, well not really, but enjoyable all the same. "

    " This book really pulls the rug out from you about halfway through. I'm sitting there reading it and my head is filling with images of idealistic love. Then slowly things start to unravel. Then before you know it you're in a nightmare. "

    " Missed out on this one when I was at school. Not sure I would have appreciated it then, anyway. Enjoyed it very much now. Very thought-provoking despite the fact that much of it belongs to another age. "
