Summary
In 1950s post-war England, the working classes faced an unappetizing choice between drudgery, degradation, and despair or the materialist blandishments of deadening suburban affluence. Arthur is the prototypical 'angry young man'--outspoken, dissatisfied with the status quo, rebelling against stifling class distinctions--insolent and self-confident, his high wages enable his disdain for following orders and his hard drinking, red-blooded weekends. He is determined to enjoy his freedom as long as he can get away with it, before being trapped by marriage into conformity, surrounded by nappies and rent books in a new housing estate
