pDuring his 1920s heyday, Arnold Bennett was one of Britains most celebrated writers. As the author of emThe Old Wives Tale/em and emClayhanger/em he was a household name, writing just as much for the common man as Londons literati. His face was plastered over theatre hoardings and the sides of West End omnibuses. His life represents the ultimate rags-to-riches story of a man who banged on the door of Fortune like a weekly debt collector as one of his obituaries so vividly put it./ppYet for all his success, few were aware how cursed Bennett felt by his life-long stutter and other debilitating character traits. In the years running up to his death in 1931, his affairs were close to collapse as he fought a losing battle on three fronts: with his estranged wife; with his disenchanted mistress; and from a literary perspective with Virginia Woolf./ppAs the first full length biography of Bennett since 1974, the work draws on a wealth of unpublished diaries and letters to shed new light on a personality who can be considered a Lost Icon of early Twentieth Century Britain./p
