5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Sillitoe - Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, 26 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (Paperback)
Wonderful. Anyone who decries the current trend of youngsters to binge drink need only to read this novel to know what a false "current" issue it is, and that it's been going on for years and probably always will. Saturday Night & Sunday Morning is a fantastic working-class manifesto which anyone stuck in a drab repetitive job, yearning for the reckless release of the weekend, regardless of class, will be able to relate to. A Love on the Dole for the fifties, a vernacular and cultural masterpiece. It's fun, it's eventful, it's charmingly written, and its protagonist is shockingly likeable. His pell-mell rush at life is admirable and charming, despite his caddishness (it even seduces his girlfriend to be, a sort I would have thought would be rather put off!). This is very enjoyable stuff. One of the best British novels of the century certainly: there aren't that many novels that define what exactly it is like to live in a certain class at a certain age in a certain decade in this country, but this is one of them. Viva British fiction!

Your review is as well-written as the book.
