Saturday night and Sunday morning by Alan Sillitoe

About the book

Working all day at a lathe leaves Arthur Seaton with energy to spare in the evenings. A hard-drinking, hard-fighting young rebel of a man, he knows what he wants and he’s sharp enough to get it.

Seemed outdated to us all having seen the film so long ago yet it was worth reading and we were able to look beyond the obvious storyline and could see how the main character was drawn from real life.

  1. Review by Godshill WI
    All our members thoroughly enjoyed this book – though none were very fond of the protagonist! It was an insight into the times, the mid fifties, and thank goodness things have improved for women!
