The Wife Of Sir Isaac Harman: H.G. Wells [Jul. 7th, 2011|08:57 pm]
Tony Grist
A pleasant social comedy that keeps turning into a drama about personal freedom, feminism, marriage, big business and the nature of the good society, then turning back again.   You never know quite what's coming next- and it's unlikely Wells did either. It has central characters who change and grow and  a delightfully grotesque supporting cast- with Wells himself briefly appearing under an alias to deliver a dyspeptic, self-filleting rant on the wickedness of artists. 

A neglected novel- but a great one.
