Love And Mr Lewisham: H.G. Wells [Apr. 21st, 2011|12:10 pm]
Tony Grist
Love and Mr Lewisham is Wells' first stab at a mainstream novel. It contains a lot of autobiography and a measure of self-contempt. It begins in exuberant light comedy and closes in grimy realism - reflecting the central character's journey from romance to responsibility.  The stand-out character is Chaffery- the fraudulent spirit medium- a self-aware and cheerfully amoral man.

That Wells may have grown bored with fiction would explain it rather neatly. A dozen solid novels and literary immortality should be enough for anyone.
