When 18-year-old Peter Granby finds himself lying on a heap of rubble after losing his mother, his home, and a fight, he turns to wealthy widow Eileen Farnsfield, whose mother he had comforted as she lay dying on the sidewalk outside the factory where he works. Eileen gives him a job as caretaker of her seaside cottages, and their relationship takes its predictable course. Yet he is left wondering, Ẁhere was the rest of it?'' In the aftermath of the novel's violent climax, Peter's horizon has cleared of the dreams that clouded his vision. Sillitoe's accomplishment is to go beyond the stereotypes of proletarian youth and sex-starved middle-aged woman by teaching the former sympathy and teaching us sympathy for the latter. The lesson that society is destiny is taught with sorrow rather than bitterness

The Dance Theater of Harlem's birthplace was in a disused garage in Harlem, a black district of New York. Arthur Mitchell, the founder who still acts as its artistic director, set up the ballet school with the aim of giving black dancers the opportunity of sound training, as their skin color meant that they often encountered difficulties finding employment with existing companies which consisted mainly of white dancers. Since its humble beginnings in 1969 - it was founded shortly after the murder of Martin Luther King - the "Dance Theatre of Harlem" has attained worldwide status. Today the repertoire is performing a representative cross section from the history of artistic dancing. Alongside classics of the Russian school such as 'Swan Lake' and 'Sheherazade' are shown the successful neoclassical dance routines from the years following the First World War as well as works by contemporary choreographers
