About

Full of hard-won wisdom and gritty authenticity, these stories of working-class blokes slugging it out with the system in 1950s Nottingham resonate with the lusty defiance of those whose will cannot be broken by oppressive poverty. There is the rebellious youth of "the loneliness of the long distance runner, " whose running becomes a metaphor for his refusal to bow to societal rules in a delinquents" home. Sillitoe"s best known work, originally published in 1959, includes nine stories about working-class outsiders scorned by the "establishment", but determined to survive.
