Alan Sillitoe was born in 1928 and left school at 14 to work in various factories. He began writing after four years in the RAF, and lived for six years in France and Spain. His first stories were printed in the 'Nottingham Weekly Guardian'. In 1958 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' was published and 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner', which won the Hawthornden prize for Literature, came out the following year. Both these books were made into films.
