Description

Mr. Sillitoe displays his remarkable gifts in a long, ambitious story and a group of eight short stories. "The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner" is a minor masterpiece, a serious yet wonderfully funny tale of a Borstal boy (Borstal being the English equivalent of our reform school) who seizes a foolproof opportunity during the annual cross-country race to show his defiance of authority. The other stories are on more or less related themes of rebellion and isolation.
