Saville by David Storey( Book )

59 editions published between 1976 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Colin Saville, a miner's son, and his growth from the 1930s on, his rise in the world by way of grammar school and college. At first there is triumph in this, not least for the father who had spurred him on, but later "alienated from his class, and with nowhere yet to go" Colin finds himself spiritually destitute, bitter, still held against his will in the place that made him ... A feast of a book ... it engenders remarkable tension because this self-effacing author, before removing himself from the book, seems to enter organically into his characters, writing from the gut of their experience

67 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Victor Tolson, a demoniac creature of massive proportions -- a man who destroys things out of his affections for them -- stalks Leonard Radcliffe, desiring to dominate and possess his remarkable, strangely innocent, nature. Radcliffe, the last product of a once-aristocratic family, recognises in Tolson everything that he himself is not, a man of irresistible strength, effectiveness, beauty and evil. Exploring a relationship of exceptional intensity between two men, each of whom, incomplete in himself, finds in the other a complementary and compulsive need, Radcliffe gradually reaches a pitch which can only end in cataclysmic confrontation."--Back cover

A novel about family and class restrictions by the Man Booker Prize-winning author of This Sporting Life and Saville With 2 rooms downstairs and 3 upstairs, the house at Spinney Moor Road is a real step-up for the Morley family. Arthur Morley is a farmer who frequently comes home drunk, and who often competes with his prudish, penny-pinching wife, Sarah, for the love of their boys, Alan and Bryan. It is Bryan, the younger son, who begins to want more out of life. He yearns for something better and finds it when he goes to live with the childless Fay Corrigan at her posh home in town during the week, while attending a prep school that she pays for. But Bryan soon feels a growing chasm between his new life and the world he left behind. And his mounting jealous-erotic obsession with the much-older Fay leads to actions--and consequences--that will reverberate for years to come. Beginning in the 1930s and concluding with the onset of World War II, A Prodigal Child is a novel about adolescent yearning, familial devotion, and the stifling conventions of class

The people here are so passionate and raw that he does not expect to ever understand them or feel at ease. But when his wife, Yvonne, fell sick, she would only accept psychiatric care if she could be near her mother, so Colin had no choice but to move north. As Yvonne wastes away in the hospital, sinking deeper and deeper into a terrifying and incomprehensible madness, Colin tries to make sense of his strange surroundings. He may live here now, but he will never call it home. To pass the time, he takes a job teaching art at a second-rate college that is headed by a nutrition-crazed dean.

Cromwell by David Storey( Book )

14 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in England during the 1600s, 'Cromwell' depicts a world of conflict and survival as the warring of rival ideological factions decimates the opportunities for ordinary people to live ordinary lives. First performed at the Royal Court in August 1973, the form of the play emerged at a time when Storey was enthralled by naturalistic - or poeticised naturalistic writing - a sudden transposition to something approaching free verse reflecting, to a degree, the dilemma explicit in the play itself: how to reconcile humanity's insatiable appetite for destruction with a longing for transcendence and peace
