Mr Raynor the School-teacher (1959)

Short Story
Author: Alan Sillitoe

A middle-aged school teacher spends his days looking out of his classroom window, leering at the shop girls at Harrison’s the draper’s shop across the road, occasionally looking up to impart some religious education to the boys in front of him, but one girl in particular – his favourite – haunts him, in Sillitoe’s gently sensual and quietly satirical short story.
