This vintage book comprises H. G. Wells’ 1925 novel, "Christina Alberta’s Father". The story is set in London and begins as an ostensibly light-hearted novel that concentrates on the flaws of the class system. However, Wells soon begins analysing asylums and mental health legislation, before finishing the novel with an in-depth discussion of feminism and the conflict of individualism and society. This text constitutes a fascinating, entertaining, and thought-provoking read that will be of special interest to fans and collectors of Wells’s seminal work. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a seminal English writer whose notable works include "The War of the Worlds" (1897) and "The Time Machine" (1895). Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
