Known primarily for his novels Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner, Sillitoe has written more than fifty books over the last forty years, including novels, plays, and collections of short stories, poems, and travel pieces, as well as more than four hundred essays.

City and shore : the function of setting in the British mystery by Gillian Mary Hanson( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Certain settings have long been a common element in British mystery and detective fiction: the quaint village; the country manor; the seaside resort; the streets of London. More than simply providing background, physical setting - in particular the city of London and the British seashore - takes on an added dimension, in a sense becoming a player in the mysteries, one that symbolizes, intensifies, and illuminate aspects of the British mystery novel." "This critical study examines 18 British mystery novels set in the city of London and 15 set by the sea. The novels span the twentieth century."--Jacket

"This book examines the ways in which 21 modern and postmodern writers have made use of the physical environment in their work. It considers how each author employs the physical settings in the plot and character development, and how those settings are used to connect with some of the intellectual concerns of the late 19th and 20th centuries"--Provided by publisher
