About the Author:

Born in 1919 in Bulwell, Nottingham, England, Stanley Middleton attended University College in Nottingham. After college he served in the British Army and then became part of the Army Educational Corps. He later taught at High Pavement College in Nottingham. Harris's Requiem, was published in 1960, A Serious Woman and Two's Company were published in '61 and '63.. His novel Holiday, about a composer who takes great joy in creativity, published in 1974, was the cowinner of the Booker Prize.

Review:

"Stanley Middleton, once dubbed "The Chekhov of Suburbia", is to the Midlands suburb what Anne Tyler is to the Midwest picket fence" * The Times * "Middleton is concerned with what goes on below the surface of lives, what people feel, dream about, hope for, resent, fear - all the things that in real life may be kept hidden... Anyone coming to Middleton afresh has a real treat in store." -- Allan Massie * Scotsman * "We need Stanley Middleton to remind us of what the novel is about." * Sunday Times * "What is so extraordinary about Mr Middleton's talent is that, despite implacable domesticity, he is not trivial... Mr Middleton does not wish to change anybody's view of the world; he only wants to help the readers understand and better the view of it that they already have, and his quietness, honesty and patience do indeed lead him to success in that endeavour." -- Bernard Levin
