Saturday Night and Sunday Morning: A Novel

'“Brilliant!” —The New Yorker   “Sillitoe’s writing, with its sharp tang of cold mornings and warm pubs, has a cumulative lyricism which makes you feel Arthur’s pangs as achingly as he does. This was the book that made ‘working class’ pursuits beautiful. It’s also a powerful story of political awakening.” —The Guardian   “The 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.” —The Daily Telegraph   “Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is Alan Sillitoe’s most famous depiction of working class life, portraying multi-layered characters constrained by the conventions of capitalism. The characters are never simple. . . . It is a vivid portrayal of the anger and frustration felt by many working class young people and will be appreciated by anyone who yearns for their weekend on a grim Monday morning.” —Socialist Review   “Sillitoe perfectly captures the post-war atmosphere amongst the working classes. Undoubtedly, the novel will endure as an invaluable social commentary of British life in the 1950s.” —Bibliofreak.net   “His people are alive, lusty, and vigorous.” —San Francisco Chronicle   “Very outspoken and vivid.” —TheSunday Times   “A refreshing originality.” —The Times Literary Supplement  “Sillitoe has written a stunner. . . . Sillitoe has worked from life, from the people he knew.” —Sunday Express  '
