Enoch 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.
This book will be interesting to the American women. In this work, they will find pleasure, some recommendations and inspiration. This is the brightest, the most unusual, and the most impressive book of his works. The book is somewhat flawed by Enoch Arnold Bennett's constant preaching against conventional morality, his flawed observations on the human condition and so forth.
