A KIND OF LOVING. In post war Britiain a new writing style emerged from the bleak times that was commonly known as ‘kitchen sink dramas’. It sounds a little disrespectful now perhaps but these stories brough realism and raw emotion to their readers. Stan Barstow’s ‘A Kind Of Loving finds Vic Brown in a bleak Yorkshire industrial town and his striving for maturity in his relationship with girlfriend Ingrid and her small town ways. The story examines in great detail his feelings as the relationship develops. Richard Huw perfectly captures the mood and character in his reading.
