H. G. Wells

A non fiction book by

To some, author of The Time Machine H G Wells was an icon. To others he was intolerable and bad tempered. His demonic life once drove a whole generation along new and daring paths, and even in old age he insisted that people 'run the gauntlet of his iconoclasm'. In this seminal biography, Vincent Brome recounts the rich fantastic cauldron of Wells' life - from his politics and writing to his complex and torn emotional life, and his painful, lingering death. Here was a man 'whose greatness lay in his ordinariness', but who was never truly ordinary.
