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. A story full of hilarity and sure to entertain any reader, this book is an ideal addition to any bookshelf and a veritable must-read for fans of Bennett's work. Enoch Arnold Bennett was an English writer, most renowned as a novelist but also working in other fields such as journalism, film, and propaganda. Originally written in 1911, we are proud to republish this classic book now with a new introductory biography of the author.
