The Secret Places of the Heart: H.G. Wells

A visionary businessman and his psychoanalyst (think Don Quixote and Sancho Panza) go for a motoring holiday round the West of England. They talk history, sex, Utopia, the future fuel crisis. At Stonehenge they run into the feisty daughter of an American billionaire... 

It's the received wisdom that Wells ran out of steam- at least as a novelist- round about 1910. Don't you believe it. This little book (which first came out in 1922) is funny, moving, full of ideas and altogether delightful.
