Saturday Night and Sunday Morning : Alan Sillitoe :Nottingham in the fifties : an exuberant, cynical and poetic slice of the times. Sillitoe himself, who died in , had left school at 14, and failed to get into a grammar school — despite the fact that as the adult man would prove, he was fiercely intelligent, with a ferociously enquiring mind, and deeply thinking. Saturday Night and Sunday morning is the story of a deeply flawed, often unlikeable, mendacious young man of extreme charm and more self-reflective depth than his heavily boozing, serially philandering and enjoying of fisticuffs would indicate. Arthur Seaton, 21, works in a bicycle factory as did Sillitoe himself, aged 14, and his father before him. He both hates and despises the daily grind of the factory, and prides himself on his manual skills — and the ability to outwit the bosses and the time-and-motion-study piecework rate organisers.
