9780099556084: A Man of Parts

A MAN OF CONTRADICTIONS.

A MAN OF PASSION.

A MAN OF THE FUTURE.

Sequestered in his blitz-battered Regent's Park house in 1944, the ailing Herbert George Wells, 'H.G.' to his family and friends, looks back on a life crowded with incident, books, and women. Charting his unpromising start as a draper's assistant to his rapid rise to fame as a writer with a prophetic imagination, his immersion in socialist politics and his belief in and practice of free love, A Man of Parts is an astonishing novel of passion, ambition and controversy.

"David Lodge's novel goes straight to the heart of the story... It is pure fun" (Claire Harman Evening Standard)
