Against a brilliantly observed background of life in the Staffordshire Potteries, ANNA OF THE FIVE TOWNS is both a novel about a gossipy, myopic, savage community and at its heart a young girl dominated by her miserly father. Bennett's portraitof Anna as a spirited, subtle, complex modern woman makes this book as absorbing and moving today as when it was first written.
