Summary

In post war Britiain a new writing style emerged from the bleak times. It was commonly known as "kitchen sink drama". That sounds a little disrespectful now, perhaps, but these stories brought realism and raw emotion to their readers. David Storey's This Sporting Life, set in the industrial north, brilliantly conveys 21-year-old steelworker Arthur Machin's love of his rugby league, his success on the field, and his feelings towards his widowed landlady, as well as his bouts of doubt and anxiety.
Stephen McGann perfectly captures the mood and the character in his reading.

Great story

I read the book years ago and love the story, Stephen McGann's performance more than does it justice, my warning to any nocturnal listeners such as me is that it is broken up by pieces of strident jazz modern involving the trumpet so beware!!!
