On his own Morse key he plays with deep concentration, tapping out the date and day of the week, the name of his companion, a line of poetry - anything that helps to keep the transmitting wrist agile. In France, he says, the Morse operator is known as le pianiste. Sillitoe is the author of some 50 books, including poetry, plays and stories for children, as well as 25 novels. His views on politics and society reflect a military mind's dislike of compromise and pay no heed to fashionable nostrums. Words like "intellectual", from his lips, are not expected to flatter. Yet in the mind of the reading public, Sillitoe is inescapably tied to Nottingham, the town where he grew up and which has provided the setting of much of his work, including his first and best-known novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, and the book of short stories that followed, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.
An outrageously funny novel of adventure, sex, corruption, and crime from one of the greatest British authors of the twentieth century. Michael Cullen is proud to be a bastard show more ▼ d young Michael hid beneath her bed to let the rocking of the springs lull him to sleep. By the time he's eighteen, he's got a pregnant girlfriend, and is staring down a long life of working-class respectability that simply makes him sick.
Sillitoe served four years in the Royal Air Force and lived for six years in France and Spain, before returning to England. His first novel, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, was published in 1958 and was followed by a collection of short stories, The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner, which won the Hawthornden Prize for Literature. With over fifty volumes to his name, Sillitoe was elected a Fellow of the Royal.
