Interesting People from The Past…

Enoch Arnold Bennett. He gave up the study of law for journalism and eventually achieved fame as a writer of novels portraying a hard life in the six Staffordshire towns of England known as “the Potteries.” Among his novels are The Old Wives’ Tale, Clayhanger (this became a popular TV series in the 70s) and Riceyman Steps, and in turn successful stage plays such as Milestones, and The Great Adventure. Born in 1867 Arnold Bennett died in 1931. I remember reading the trilogy of Clayhanger back in the 1960s, and watching the superbly made Granada TV production starring the late and great Harry Andrews. Jessica and I, at the time were completely and utterly absorbed by it!
