A moving, funny and masterful novel about the life of H.G. Wells - writer, thinker, lover and a man of genius. Sequestered in his blitz-battered house, the ailing H.G. Wells looks back on a life crowded with incident, books and women. Has it been a success or a failure? Arguing with himself about his conduct, he relives his relationships with two wives and many mistresses, especially the brilliant student Amber Reeves and the gifted writer Rebecca West, both of whom bore him children, with dramatic and long-lasting consequences. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.
