Arnold Bennett, predicted to be a failure by his father, was the master of the English realistic novel in the tradition of Balzac and Zola, and of the depiction of English provincial life. Born in one of the famed Five Towns, where England's foremost pottery works (Wedgewood and Spode) were located, he invariably returned to the landscape of his boyhood when he began to write fiction. He was a phenomenally successful writer; he traveled extensively in France and also lived there for many years. At the age of 64, he died of typhoid contracted after drinking water in a Paris hotel to prove to companions that it was safe.
