SATURDAY NIGHTS AND SUNDAY MORNINGS is a classic novel of the factory worker

SATURDAY NIGHTS AND SUNDAY MORNINGS is a classic novel of the factory worker. While it is set in the 1950's in Nottingham, England, it portrays a working-class life that had a much broader reach for much of the latter half of the twentieth century; aspects of the life of Arthur Seaton and his family and friends certainly were familiar to me from my blue-collar years circa 1970. In many respects, Arthur Seaton surely is a young Alan Sillitoe. Sillitoe grew up in Nottingham and his father worked at the Raleigh Bicycle factory, as did a young Alan between the ages of fourteen and eighteen

Modern readers are unlikely to be shocked by his unsentimental affair with the married sisters Brenda and Winnie. But Sillitoe's writing, with its sharp tang of cold mornings and warm pubs, has a cumulative lyricism which makes you feel Arthur's pangs as achingly as he does. This was the book that made "working class" pursuits beautiful. It's also a powerful story of political awakening. This article was amended on Saturday October 25 2008

They were merely incidents, yet fitted well into the novel because they either concerned one character - Arthur Seaton - or centred around one city and one family.

"Miles nearer the real thing than D.H.Lawrence's mystic, brooding working-men ever came." - "Sunday Express". "Very outspoken and vivid." - "Sunday Times". "A refreshing originality." - "Times Literary Supplement".

Remember reading this book in my teens and I was impressed by it.As I read it 40 years later I was disappointed with the self centred characters and the general malaise around their lives.Growing up in this generation seemed a lot brighter.

Gelgen
I was blown away by this novel. I'd say it was a life-changer. Probably one of the best debut novels in history, along with Wilde's DORIAN GRAY. Read this, ya hear?!

Whitecaster
Phenomenal ! A must read:

Awesome book, great condition!

Lost Python
A novel set in nineteen fifties Nottingham, England. A celebration of breaking the mould, being different than previous generations, the start of a youth culture trying to shake of the grey of the Second World War. A cynical, careless approach to life where work fed boozing and going out time. The new suit worn to the pub, a mark of a new emerging working class. Saturday night was the main event. A hard drinking culture where following the monotony of a week in factory/manual work; lads and some lasses would go down the pub to drink, eye each other up and for the boys try and get laid and the girls not to be seen as easy. Having a good time, flashing cash and living a bit was the driving ambition. Getting into trouble was always the risk, For Arthur, the protagonist, it is screwing a squaddies wife and taking a beating for the pleasure. Unwanted pregnancy and forced marriage. The brief flame of freedom burned low, the lot of many working people of this era. Then there is the haunting image of the old man hurling a brick through the window of a funeral parlour and being detained by a woman in WAAF uniform. Almost surreal. Mr Sillitoe produced two works which capture working class lives in change and which would by the ninety eighties be mostly obsolete. He remains a significant novelist of this time and place and it is good to remember the period which then ignited the sixties and is now transformed into the generation of social media. Good to reflect, the surrounds have changed markedly but youth culture remains basically driven by the same aims and ambitions.
