As featured on Radio 4's Book at Bedtime. Sid Chaplin's powerful novel of disaffection in 1960s Newcastle, The Day of the Sardine charts a young man's uneasy passage into adulthood. Arthur Haggerston's story takes place against the background of a young workforce absorbed into tedious, repressive employment where the only outlets come through street violence and gang warfare. The essence of Sid Chaplin's novel is easily recognisable in the urban tensions of Britain today.

Review:
Chaplin's prose is wonderfully alive, and his novel is itself an overlooked but untarnished gem --The Independent

This is a welcome return to print for the early-60s chronicle of Geordie man-child Arthur Haggerston as he negotiates the the void between a failed education system and a stagnant labour market. --The Guardian

When he depicts Arthur's search for some sort of moral framework within the anarchy of modern society, he speaks for all of us, poetically and passionately, as truly now as he did almost half-a-century ago. --From the Foreword by Alan Plater
About the Author:
Sid Chaplin (1916 to 86) influenced a generation of writers including David Storey, Stan Barstow and Keith Waterhouse, and his novels and stories enjoyed a popular readership in the 1960s and 1970s. Drawing on his working-class upbringing and employment in the North-East of England, Chaplin's social observation, humane characters, evocative writing style and authentic dialogue are as fresh and relevant today as when he was alive.
