Or somebody better-looking. The Storyteller is one of the best ever novels about the pitiless, unforgiving nature of writing, and The General is the fictional precursor to Wladyslaw Szpilman's The Pianist. Some men are startlingly ugly Women swear up and down that looks are not nearly as important to them as they are to men, that a woman will not hesitate to marry an unattractive man if he has other compensatory qualities, such as a sense of humor lonely Aland Free wives in a highly developed intellect or a villa in Tuscany. He is survived by Ruth and two children, David and Susan. I only believe the part about the villa in Tuscany. It was Sillitoe's ambition to become a pilot, and for most of the war he was engaged in a race against time, measured in allied victories, to qualify for flight training and join the conflict. When the novel came out the critics disagreed, as did the impresario Harry Saltzman, who sponsored Karel Reisz as director of the lonely Aland Free wives in adaptation, with Sillitoe as scriptwriter. All I'm saying is that marital fidelity is not always the direct result of a romantic disposition or an ironclad values lonely Aland Free wives in. But are they? Much like the ugly guys, boring guys count their lucky stars that they were able to find one woman capable of staying awake while they moan about the latest Financial Accounting Standards Board standards or complain that no one ever plays Seals and Crofts or Bobby Vinton at weddings anymore. Once they have manufactured this self-serving, pseudo-scientific rationalization, additional justifications for infidelity are easy to devise.
