Inhaltsangabe: No one in England would recognise famous painter Priam Farll, as he has lived abroad for many years. He is also quite shy and decides to changes identities with his valet so as not to be bothered by visitors and admirers. When he does return to England, however, the valet dies and Priam Farll soon learns that 'he' is to be buried in Westminster Abbey with all due ceremony accorded a famous person. The story that unfolds is both humorous and full of twists and turns.
Über den Autor: Enoch Arnold Bennett, the son of a solicitor, was born in Hanley, which is in the Potteries district of Staffordshire. He was initially employed by his father, a solicitor, and at age twenty-one moved to London, initially to again work as a solicitor?s clerk. However, he soon turned to writing popular serial fiction and editing a women?s magazine. After publication of many articles and stories in serial form, his first novel A Man From the North was published in 1898. This novel was received with critical acclaim and Bennett became a full-time professional writer and moved to Paris where he became a man of cosmopolitan and discerning tastes. During the First World War, Arnold Bennett became director of propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information at the behest of Lord Beaverbrook, whose experiences during the First World War were to later inspire Bennett to write the novel Lord Raingo. At the end of the war, he was offered a knighthood, but refused it.
