Four decades on from the widely praised Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, we rediscover the Seaton brothers. Older: certainly. Wiser: perhaps not. Arthur and Brian, one with an ailing wife, the other with an emotional knapsack of failure and success, are on their way to Jenny’s 70th birthday party. Brian and Jenny had years ago experimented with sex—semi–clothed, stealthy, with the added bonus of fear. Arthur, on the other hand, had cut a libidinous swathe through the female population of Nottinghamshire. Life has changed. So have the brothers, but not so much that they aren’t still recognizable from their old anarchic, authority–hating, idiosyncratic selves. A beautifully crafted novel by the author of The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.About the Author:
Alan Sillitoe left school at 14 to work in various factories until becoming an air traffic control assistant with the Ministry of Aircraft Production in 1945. He began writing after four years in the RAF, and lived for six years in France and Spain. 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.
