Elsie and the Child: A Tale of Riceyman Steps and Other Stories

Set in a small industrial town at the start of the 20th century, this is the humorous story of Edward “Denry” Machin. Denry is an impulsive, opportunistic and occasionally lucky entrepreneur with few scruples where money-making is concerned. Not especially likeable yet not entirely loathsome, Denry makes for a very entertaining character to both the fictional townsfolk and readers of this tale alike.

Author Bio for Bennett, Arnold

Author Image

Enoch Arnold Bennett (always known as Arnold Bennett) was one of the most remarkable literary figures of his time, a product of the English Potteries that he made famous as the Five Towns. Yet he could hardly wait to escape his home town, and he did so by the sheer force of his ambition to succeed as an author. In his time he turned his hand to every kind of writing, but he will be remembered for such novels as The Old Wives' Tale, the Clayhanger trilogy (Clayhanger, Hilda Lessways, and These Twain), and The Card. He also wrote such intriguing self-improvement books as Literary Taste, How To Live on 24 Hours a Day, The Human Machine, etc. A number of biographies have appeared over the years, and I suggest that Margaret Drabble's is probably the best.
