The Invisible Man

The Life and Liberties of H. G. Wells

Book - 1992
Rate this:
For almost half a century H.G. Wells was an international literary phenomenon; the only writer of his time who could command an audience with both Roosevelt and Stalin.
Unlike any other biographer of Wells, Coren paints a composite portrait of an extremely varied life set against the social and political background of the time. The Invisible Man delves deeply into the paradox that was H.G. Wells: the utopian visionary and staunch advocate of women's suffrage versus the misogynistic womanizer and vicious anti-Semite. This book exposes for the first time his disturbing views on the Jewish problem, views that he defended vehemently even through the 1930s.
