The Prize Lodger

(1898)
A Novella by

 
 
Archibald Jordan contentedly resides in his native Islington, a perennial lodger in that neighborhood's many boarding houses. Fastidious in his habits and gently insistent in his demands (but always paying more than the going rate), he confounds his landladies by his habit of never taking up residence for more than a year. Offering no explanations, he leaves each lady mystified and in hope her prize lodger will one day return. But when he enters the house of Mrs. Elderfield, a newcomer to Islington, the bachelor finds domestic perfection that he plans to make permanent.
