Arnold Bennett (1867-1931) began writing full-time in 1900 after publishing his first novel, A Man from the North, in 1898. He remains best known today for The Old Wives' Tale, published in 1908.
Bennett served as the director of propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information during World Wra I, for which work he was later offered a knighthood. He declined the honor.
This novel is an affectionate satire of London theatrical society and a sequel to Bennett's novel The Card.
