Meet the Author


Arnold Bennett (1867–1931) was a British writer whose prolific output included numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, literary criticism as well as theatre journalism, an opera, and a screenplay. English novelist Margaret Drabble says of him, “Bennett’s books I think are very fine indeed, on the highest level, deeply moving… I feel they have been underrated.”
