Read full description of the books:Henry Earlforward, a shabby Clerkenwell bookseller,has retired from life to devote himself and his wife Violet to a consuming passion for money.
He is so miserly that they have to do with candles and not much food.
This bleak story is rather chilling as they both become ill due to being very careful and saving up their money.
Their maid Elsie is quite a contrast in that she has a zest for life and the hope that Joe her boyfriend will come back.
He was damaged by the war.
A psychological force of love and death.
Very compelling despite the sombre tone of the book.
I loved the bit where they were describing the premises.
There were books everywhere, stacked up on the floor, in cupboards and even in the bath!
Read information about the authorEnoch Arnold Bennett (always known as Arnold Bennett) was one of the most remarkable literary figures of his time, a product of the English Potteries that he made famous as the Five Towns. Yet he could hardly wait to escape his home town, and he did so by the sheer force of his ambition to succeed as an author. In his time he turned his hand to every kind of writing, but he will be remembered for such novels as The Old Wives' Tale, the Clayhanger trilogy (Clayhanger, Hilda Lessways, and These Twain), and The Card. He also wrote such intriguing self-improvement books as Literary Taste, How To Live on 24 Hours a Day, The Human Machine, etc.
