Original 1912 hardback printing not a reprint. "Enoch Arnold Bennett (27 May 1867 – 27 March 1931) was an English writer. He is best known as a novelist, but he also worked in other fields such as the theatre, journalism, propaganda and films. Bennett suffered from a stammer, which Somerset Maugham described as making it "painful to watch the struggle he had sometimes to get the words out." Maugham, who also suffered from a stammer, speculated that "except for the stammer which forced him to introspection, Arnold would never have become a writer.During the First World War Bennett became Director of Propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information. His appointment was made on the recommendation of Lord Beaverbrook, who also recommended him as Deputy Minister of the Department at the end of the war. He refused a knighthood in 1918. Bennett died of typhoid at his home in Baker Street, London, on 27 March 1931. Bennett was a prolific writer with dozens of titles including fiction, plays, non-fiction, Film adaptations, Opera, and propaganda. ; Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 268 pages
