Kipps: The Story of a Simple Soulby H. G. Wells
Young Artie Kipps is desperate to escape the world of retail trade. Embarking on self-improvement, he allows first a lady and then an unexpected legacy to turn his head and ruin him. But the rum paradoxically manages to save him. H.G. Wells pokes fun at a whole gallery of social pretensions from high society to middle class snobbery in this witty portrait of a draper's assistant bent on acquiring refinement.
