Today I am reviewing Clayhanger by Arnold Bennett and revealing Five Fascinating facts about him at Shiny New Books!
The link is http://shinynewbooks.co.uk/clayhanger-by-arnold-bennett/
I’m hoping that works! Otherwise try http://shinynewbooks.co.uk/
In this edition of Shiny new books I review a reprint of Clayhanger as an immersive book of family and one man’s progress through life in a Midlands industrial town. Five Fascinating Facts about Arnold Bennett also recalls some little gems I discovered on a recent visit to the Potteries museum in Stoke on Trent. If you are a Bargain Hunt or antique programme fan I would recommend it!
I was fortunate enough to go when they had an exhibition about Arnold Bennett and his paintings, but their permanent exhibitions are very interesting and family friendly. They sold quite a range of his books in the shop, which is great as when I visit an author – associated site, I love being able to buy a book by that author. Of course, reading it takes a little longer!
Here is one of that I bought. My review to follow… sometime. Meanwhile, here is a link to an interesting site which I have not read in detail, but reviews this book in great depth! https://greatwarfiction.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/the-pretty-lady/
I have also got a box of books from the wonderful Dean Street Press, so that I can study their backlist of Crime Classics! Look out for more (fictional, Golden Age) murder from the Vicarage!
