Description
The author of the Man Booker Prize finalists Small World and Nice Work here gives us a brilliant novelization of the life of H.G. Wells, one of the 20th century's most prophetic and creative writers and a man who immersed himself in socialist politics and free love. Wells had sexual relations with innumerable women in his lifetime, but in 1944, as he finds himself dying and disillusioned by his utopian dreams, he returns to the memories of a select group of wives and mistresses, including the brilliant young student Amber Reeves and the gifted writer Rebecca West, and finally comes to understand himself.

"[This] terrifically enjoyable novel ... explores, with great verve, Wells's lifelong attempt to honor his own complexity, to be true to himself as a sexual being, a loving family man, a creative artist and an ambitious social thinker.... Even if you're up on Wells's life and writings, [David] Lodge makes his novel-cum-biography mesmerizing."Washington Post
