liked it

I read this book years ago and came back to it wanting to enjoy the work again. Unfortunately this was a book that perhaps does not bear a second reading. It is now painfully outdated.
This was a surprise. I've re-read a number of Booker prize winners over the years and most do stand the test of time. I read Docherty for the first time recently and feel that, if you're after working class grit and grim, you might be better served choosing that book.
