Alan Sillitoe was an integral part of the Angry Young Men movement of the fifties that focused on its authentic depiction of real working class people. This book is true to their ideals in its raw sharp writing of the story of a young man framed by his brutal experience in the army and as a factory worker.

Fuelled by a bleak aggressive outlook on life the book centers around a boozy, philandering weekend which is graphically captured by Sillitoe's clever prose and Linus Roache's strong reading. Download and start listening now!

    " Great working class novel about the struggle of working and a life that consists of drinking to pass the time and chasing women before it's back to work at the same old grind on Monday morning. "

    " Considering the somewhat chauvinistic perspective carried throughout the book by the main character, Arthur, it was more Sillitoe's style of writing that appealed to me throughout the book as opposed to the storyline itself. Great read.. no beating around the bush in this one! My first Sillitoe novel to date, and I intend on increasing that number. "

    " Maybe the classic of its kind, the musings of an angry young man and how his grinding existence is made worthwhile by weekends. Which is pretty hard not to identify with, even forty years after it was written. "

    " This was a cracker. A bona fide work of blue-collar existentialism, full of unrefined rebellion and working class whit. I generally don't go for this kind of stuff - English novels about the working classes always make me feel a tad claustrophobic and/or depressed - but this had a real and palpable energy to it. Yes, it does have the slightly ragged feel of a first novel but that's part of what makes it great. "
