9780002252225: Collected Stories

This is a collection of short stories. Ranging from Alan Sillitoe's earliest classic to his most recent fiction, these stories are chosen to reflect the timelessness of his storytelling. It is published to coincide with his biography "Life Without Armour".

From the Back Cover:

"Sillitoe's work is distinguished by its honesty, the clean cut of its narrative line, the authenticity and congruence of its detail. The thirty-eight stories put together in 'Collected Stories' strike me as the best part of Sillitoe's life's work, and worthy to rank with the finest things done in that difficult form"
SCOTSMAN

"As a short-story writer he is on the fringe of the V S Pritchett class, along with the justly admired (but unjustly more admired) William Trevor. It is time the magnitude of Sillitoe's achievement was more widely recognised"
DAILY TELEGRAPH

"'Collected Stories' show him at his best. Alan Sillitoe writes effectively and poignantly"
MAIL ON SUNDAY

"As his 'Collected Stories' show convincingly, Sillitoe is, at his best, a master of the genre…Tense, compact and gritty, they speak out with a voice that one recognises at once, with gradtitude, as wholly truthful"
EVENING STANDARD

"Shows a writer who understands the art of the short form"
HAMPSTED & HIGHGATE EXPRESS

About the Author:

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.

Book Description Flamingo, London, 1995. First Edition. First Edition. First edition, with "Published by Flamingo 1995" and full number line on the copyright page. A review copy with sticker on the front panel of the dj stating "Advance Copy" which advertises a "HarperCollins World Trade Paperback Original". This British hardcover is uncommon, due to a small first printing - possibly because Flamingo may have decided to skip the hardcover issue of this 586-page story collection. Why else would HarperCollins use a hardcover as an ARC for a paperback? 8vo blue boards. An unusually nice copy of this large book. (Because of its weight, this book will require extra postage if shipped out of the United States). Some minor toning to pages else very fine in very fine unclipped dj. Bookseller Inventory # 26936
