I began reading the second of my Christmas present ‘kitchen sink’ novels, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning yesterday.
It is so readable.
I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed this book. Arthur Seaton is one of the most gripping characters I’ve ever read, he’s a rude, obnoxious, sensitive, kind, hard-working, philandering, don’t-give-a-fuck character who just shouts from the page.
…and The L Shaped Room.
…and Man at the Top.
…and Up The Junction.
Shit, I forgot how many great stories came from that time.
