“Whatever people say I am, that’s what I’m not.”
~ Alan Sillitoe was an English writer and one of the so-called “angry young men” of the 1950’s. He disliked the label, as did most of the other writers to whom it was applied. He is best known for his debut novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and his early short story collection The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, both of which were adapted into films.
