Alligator Playground

Alligator Playground

By: Alan Sillitoe (author)eBook


From one of England’s greatest living writers comes a collection of exquisitely formed stories set in life’s great playground. Relationships – clandestine and legitimate – are the theme: boorish chaps and their stalwart women ululate and hum; marriages and infidelities tick-tock and tick over; Fitzrovian passion flares; strong men turn to drink. Love, sex, loss, are captured in Mr Sillitoe’s inimitable style. As well as the general theme of the union of the sexes, we have inspired insights into birth, boyhood, bereavement and aloneness in a collection of perfectly narrated observations, in which the reader participates in each extraordinary experience.
