'The Bottle Factory Outing' by Beryl Bainbridge

Beryl Bainbridge’s 1974 novel centres on two very different women – shy Brenda and outspoken Freda – who work in an Italian-run wine-bottling factory and share a bedsit. When Freda decides to organise a work outing for all the factory employees, nothing will ever be the same.

The reader is Alison Glennie.

‘The Bottle Factory Outing’ by Beryl Bainbridge is published by Little, Brown.
