Storey, David

(David Malcolm Storey), 1933–, English novelist and playwright, b. Wakefield, Yorkshire. His first novel, This Sporting Life (1960), was a disguised autobiography about the brutalization of a man who has no choice other than to play Rugby league football. His best-known play, Home (1971), set in an old people's asylum, also shows how people need exceptional strength to break free of environment and conventions. Other plays include The Restoration of Arthur Middleton (1966), The Contractor (1971), The Changing Room (1972), Life Class (1975), and Mother's Day (1977). Storey's other novels include Pasmore (1974), Saville (1976), which won the Booker Prize, A Prodigal Child (1982), and Present Times (1984).
