When young Vic Brown embarks on a sexual liaison with Ingrid - a girl with whom he is infatuated but does not love - he gets caught out. For this is not a fairy tale, but a world of struggle and compromise, where Vic must come to terms the hard way with adult life and his feelings for the beautiful but demanding Ingrid. A Kind of Loving is rightly regarded as a classic of post-war literature, and is as hard-hitting and as touching today as when it was first published in the 1960s. A novel immortalized first as a film and then as a highly acclaimed TV series is now available again and will be welcomed by a new generation of readers.
