And crime novelist Michael Walters, who studied with Mr Middleton, says in A farewell to Stanley Middleton that "Despite his winning one of the earliest Booker prizes for his novel Holiday in 1974, Middleton remains perhaps one of the most under-rated of British novelists. His work is resolutely unfashionable, dealing with middle-class, middle-English, largely uneventful lives. And yet his prose is capitivating, and his plotting turns the minutiae of everyday living into gripping narratives."
