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 pomp accorded a famous person. The story that unfolds is both humorous and full of twists and turns.
About the Author: Enoch Arnold Bennett, the son of a solicitor, was born in Hanley, Staffordshire. At twenty-one, he moved to London, initially to work as a solicitor's clerk, but he soon turned to writing popular serial fiction and editing a women's magazine. After the publication of his first novel, A Man From the North in 1898, he became a professional writer. He moved to Paris and became a man of cosmopolitan and discerning tastes. Bennett's great reputation is built upon the success of his novels and short stories set in the Potteries, an area of north Staffordshire that he recreated as the 'Five Towns'. Anna of the Five Towns and The Old Wives' Tale show the influence of Flaubert, Maupassant and Balzac as Bennett describes provincial life in great detail. Arnold Bennett is an important link between the English novel and European realism. He wrote several plays and lighter works such as The Grand Babylon Hotel and The Card.
