Alan Sillitoe (4 March 1928 – 25 April 2010)

Alan Sillitoe died on the weekend.

What a gutsy real writer he was.

I loved this
excerpt from Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1958).

"You followed the motto of ‘be drunk be happy’, kept your crafty arms around female waists, and felt the beer going beneficially down into the elastic capacity of your guts”
