'Don't interrupt me,' said Wells, 'can't you see I'm dying!' 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.
