Christina Alberta's Father: H.G. Wells [Apr. 27th, 2014|08:29 am]
Tony Grist
One of Wells's lower-middle class anti-heroes (with a Wellsian New Woman for a daughter) gets it into his head that he's the reincarnation of Sargon, King of Kings- and begins to act accordingly. Wells tests his own Utopian theories almost to destruction and, by the way, gives us a chilling expose of the horrors of the mental health system. This is one of his best books and- when he chooses it to be- every bit as funny as Kipps or Mr Polly.
