A Kind of Loving was released as an (abridged) audio book by MCI Spoken Word in 1995, read by Richard Huw. It is also available as an unabridged audio book (eight cassettes!), published by Oasis in 1991, and read by Stephen Thorne.
The book was featured on BBC Radio 4's A Book at Bedtime in May 1998, read by Sean Bean.
The book was dramatized on Radio 4 in ten parts, by Diana Griffiths, in 2010.
A special edition of A Kind of Loving was released for the 50th anniversary of the first publication of the book. It was published by Parthian Books, and is still in print.
The book is also available as an eBook, both in Kindle and ePub format.
The first edition is very easy to find, but generally a bit pricy, as this is Barstow's most famous book. Second-hand paperback copies in good condition are very easy to find.
The book has been translated into several languages, including Dutch, Swedish, Danish, German, Czech, Slovak, Russian, Lithuanian and Armenian.
