Published together for the first time, these magazine short stories are a valuable and entertaining addition to the Arnold Bennett output displaying a treasure trove of Bennett nuggets taken from the Golden Age of magazine short stories.
Spanning 40 years from the autumn of a Victorian Britain to the pre-war Britain of the 1930s whilst it was in depths of depression, they allow us to travel from the capital, London upto the Potteries, then onto the peninsula of Cornwall. As we move cross country we read of lost love, ghostly mysteries, terrorist plots, murder, marital discord, war-time profiteering, social high-jinks, romance – the whole range of life as seen through the eyes of Bennett
