Overview

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning by Alan Sillitoe

"It's a great life...if you don't weaken."

That's the motto of Arthur Seaton - Britain's original Angry Young Man. Arthur punches the clock at a Nottingham steel factory, waiting for Saturday night when he explodes a week's worth of pent-up passions in outrageous drinking bouts, pub-clearning brawls and encounters with other men's wives. He is determined to escape the clutches of anyone who would hold him down, keeping his wry humor intact and thumbing his nose at the Establishment. Sunday morning's hangover does nothing to dull Arthur's piercing insight into his own situation. He knows that come what may, no matter what, he won't go down without a fight. Brutally honest and wickedly funny, this groundbreaking novel of British working-class life by the author of The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner, simmer with vitality, lust, and humor and remains as compelling today as it was when first published.
