Read full description of the books Pasmore:Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 1972
To all external appearances, Colin Pasmore has a happy life: not yet thirty, with a wife, three children, a nice home, and a good job as a university lecturer, everything seems to be going right. But after he is beset by a recurring nightmare, he begins to experience the terrifying sensation that his whole life is unravelling. He is suddenly unable to bear the presence of friends and family, incapable of touching or communicating with his wife, dissatisfied and even embarrassed by his job. He finds himself looking on in helpless horror, struggling to understand why his entire world is disintegrating around him. . .
Pasmore (1972), David Storey’s fourth novel, won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. This new edition is the first in more than 25 years and features the original jacket art by the author. Storey’s Radcliffe and Saville (winner of the Booker Prize) are also available from Valancourt Books.

Read information about the authorDavid Storey was an English playwright, screenwriter, award-winning novelist and a former professional rugby league player. Storey was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire in 1933, and studied at the Slade School of Art. His first two novels were both published in 1960, a few months apart: This Sporting Life, which won the Macmillan Fiction Award and was adapted for an award-winning 1963 film, and Flight Into Camden, which won the Somerset Maugham Award. His next novel, Radcliffe (1963) met with widespread critical acclaim in both England and the United States, and during the 1960s and 70s, Storey became widely known for his plays, several of which achieved great success. He returned to fiction in 1972 with Pasmore, which won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Award and was short-listed for the Booker Prize. Saville (1976) won the Booker Prize and has been hailed by at least one critic as the best of all the Booker winners. His most recent novel was Thin-Ice Skater (2004). David Storey lived in London.
