Other Literary Forms
This Sporting Life, David Storey’s first—and still most widely read—novel, appeared in 1960; it won the Macmillan Fiction Award and was later made into a successful film with a screenplay by Storey (1963). Storey also adapted his In Celebration to film in 1975. Flight into Camden, which received both the John Llewelyn Rhys Memorial Prize and the Somerset Maugham Award, also reached print in 1960. Among Storey’s many other novels are Pasmore, published in 1972 and winner of the Faber Memorial Prize; the autobiographical Saville (1976), awarded the prestigious Booker Prize; and Present Times (1984). Storey has also written Edward (1973), a book for children, and Storey’s Lives: Poems, 1951-1991 (1992).
