The study and appreciation of the life, works and times of Arnold Bennett

Arnold Bennett’s Uncollected Short Stories – Edited by John Shapcott

Published together for the first time, these stories are a valuable and entertaining addition to the Arnold Bennett canon.  they offer a treasure house of gems taken from the Golden Age of magazine short stories. 

Spannine forty years from late-Victorian Britain to the 1930’s Depression, they take us on a journey from London to the Potteries and to the far South West.  As we travel 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 wyes of a master craftsman.
