The Bottle Factory Outing: Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, 1974

Out of stock. Delivery time unknown.

Description

Short-listed for the Booker Prize and named 'one of the greatest novels of all time' by The Observer , this riveting novel which was recently adapted on BBC Radio 4 shows Beryl Bainbridge at her darkly comic best.

Freda and Brenda spend their days working in an Italian-run wine-bottling factory. A work outing offers promise for Freda and terror from Brenda; passions run high on that chilly day of freedom, and life after the outing never returns to normal.

Inspired by author Beryl Bainbridge's own experiences working at a London wine-factory in the 1970s, The Bottle Factory Outing examines issues of friendship and consent, making the novel timelier than ever. Readers will be dazzled by this offbeat, haunting yet hilarious Guardian fiction prize-winning novel.

'An outrageously funny and horrifying story' Graham Greene ( Observer )
