Categories: Fiction » Classic

Alfred Polly uses the money he inherits to marry and to set up a shop in a small town. Being quiet and somewhat direction-less, he soon realizes that both of these is not after his heart; and resorts


to desperate measures to break free.
Herbert George Wells, an English author, best known for his work in the science fiction genre, with irony and sadness describes here a small character, petty bourgeois. Living in an atmosphere of stagnant lower-middle class, the protagonist, not satisfied with his life, is forced to rush about vicious circle.
