Shiny New Books review – Anna of the Five Towns by Arnold Bennett

Over on Shiny New Books this very day, my review of Anna of the Five Towns by Arnold Bennett. I thought that it was a really memorable book, written very much from Anna’s point of view as she negotiates life with a difficult father. There are some great descriptions of life in an industrial town, for women as well as men, in the early twentieth century. It is quite an emotional book, but very involving in its elements of hope and romance. I enjoyed rediscovering this writer, and getting his view of twentieth century (ish) life.
