Description

Stan Barstow's landmark 'Brit-Lit' novel of the sixties immortalized Vic Brown, the amiable working class lad from the North and led the way for author's like Nick Hornby writing similar slice-of-life drama. Still as fresh and alive today, it spawned two sequels: The Watchers on the Shore (1966) and The Right True End (1976). First published in 1960, it has long been used as a set text in British schools. It has also been translated at various times into a film starring Alan Bates (1962) of the same name, a television series (1973) starring Clive Wood, a radio play and a stage play. A Kind of Loving was the first of a trilogy, published over the course of sixteen years, that followed hero Vic Brown through marriage, divorce and a move from the mining town of Cressley to London.

REVIEWS:

“In the five decades since its initial publication, A Kind of Loving has lost none of its power; indeed, its contemporary relevance is astonishing. Barstow's work, in its empathetic anger and passion and integrity, has long been a hope and a beacon for the socially engaged and politically committed writer and reader and this re-issue of one of the last century's finest novels is not only a boon but a necessity. Such is the mark of great and imperishable literature.”

—Niall Griffiths

“...warmth, liveliness, honesty, compassion...”

—Sunday Times
