A Temporary Life: A Novel

'“A novelist of substance . . . A very skilled and very intelligent writer indeed.” —The New York Times   “The leading novelist of his generation.” —The Daily Telegraph   “An absorbing writer.” —The New Yorker   “Brilliant, always intelligent and absorbing. Storey’s command both of pathos and of comedy is increasingly sure. . . . Few novelists now writing see so vividly, think so intelligently, command so much sheer understanding of people and society.” —The Times Literary Supplement   “A Temporary Life underlines David Storey’s claim to be considered the most serious and accomplished of contemporary novelists of working-class life. . . . Lawrence, I think, would approve the way in which he can create scenes of memorable dramatic power which also serve to demonstrate ideas.” —Robert Nye'
