From The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner to his more recent A Man of His Time, Alan Sillitoe remains one of England's greatest living authors. A Start in Life is Sillitoe's ninth novel and follows the fortunes of Michael Cullen, who describes himself as a bastard' at the start of the novel and soon confirms another meaning of the term when he leaves Nottingham and his pregnant girlfriend behind to flee to London, where he becomes involved in a smuggling ring. Sillitoes has adopted the picaresque form for this novel, yet it is full of his trademark humour.'
