Product description


"Extraordinarily rich, wide-ranging and hugely entertaining." (Daily Mail)

"Excellent... scrupulous and scholarly... It bounds along terrifically." (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

"As protean, elusive but compelling as it's hero, David Lodge's bio-novel about HG Wells breaks all the rules but still grips the reader - like Wells himself." (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"As scintillating, engaging, and multidimensional as the man whose life and character it faithfully animates." (The Atlantic)

"This is his best book in years: sprawling, funny, touching, a near-perfect fusion of story and scholarship." (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

A moving, funny and masterful novel about the life of H.G. Wells - writer, thinker, lover and man of genius.
