Product Overview

A sympathetic collection of stories about the pride, pretensions, and snobbery of life in the Potteries, the small towns of northern England''s manufacturing district, with their Methodists, manufacturers, and artisans. Includes "The Death of Simon Fuge," one of the finest short stories ever written in the English language. Arnold Bennett, a versatile and prolific writer who was one of the luminaries of the London literary scene during the early twentieth century, grew up in the environs of Hanley, Staffordshire, one of the Midlands pottery towns that later served as a backdrop for many of his celebrated novels and stories. Newly designed and typeset for easy reading by Boomer Books.
