Saturday Night and Sunday Morning by Alan Sillitoe
Harper Collins 1991

Here is real working-class life, written from the inside, in language of raw energy that is direct and down-to-earth. Hard-drinking, womanising Arthur Seaton spends his days in mindless bicycle manufacture in a factory and his nights forgetting it all. His instincts and appetites dictate his behaviour and this gives the novel great integrity and originality.
Alan Sillitoe was born in Nottingham.
