About this title

Synopsis:

This highly readable novel revolves around a train crash, whilst also dealing with divisions and tensions in society in the inter-war years. Bennett began writing the novel in 1926, the year of the general strike, but far from being pessimistic about eventual outcomes, he ends on an optimistic note and a belief in a bright future once the ‘current difficulties’ are given a true perspective.

About the Author:

Enoch Arnold Bennett, the son of a solicitor, was born in Hanley, Staffordshire. At twenty-one, he moved to London, initially to work as a solicitor's clerk, but he soon turned to writing popular serial fiction and editing a women's magazine. After the publication of his first novel, A Man From the North in 1898, he became a professional writer. He moved to Paris and became a man of cosmopolitan and discerning tastes. Bennett's great reputation is built upon the success of his novels and short stories set in the Potteries, an area of north Staffordshire that he recreated as the 'Five Towns'. Anna of the Five Towns and The Old Wives' Tale show the influence of Flaubert, Maupassant and Balzac as Bennett describes provincial life in great detail. Arnold Bennett is an important link between the English novel and European realism. He wrote several plays and lighter works such as The Grand Babylon Hotel and The Card.
