Ready to Join?

Next Thursday we'll discuss one of Alan Sillitoe's most known work: the short story "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner", available here in different formats Protected content (for the PDF, read the first 25 pages as the link contains a whole book of stories published under the same title).

Alan Sillitoe is a British author, a member of the "Angry generation" - a movement that appeared in the late Protected content . His debut novel, "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning", as well as this short story, deal with the struggles of young men in post-war British society.

It doesn't matter if you didn't have time to finish reading the whole short story or that you'll be late.
