Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(1919–2009),

British novelist, born in Nottingham where all of his fiction is set. Maintaining an even output of nearly one novel a year, Middleton spent five decades chronicling English provincial family life. His work is untouched by literary fashion: dogged social realism prevails in Harris's Requiem (1960), Live and Learn (1996), and everything in between, including Holiday (1974, Booker Prize).

Subjects: Literature.
