"Certain Personal Matters" is a collection of humorous and witty essays written by H. G. Wells. The essays span a variety of different topics but can perhaps most accurately be considered as a humorous and cynical look at the customs of his day. Highly recommended for fans and collectors of Well's seminal work. Contents include: "Of Conversation", "In A Literary Household", "On Schooling And The Phases Of Mr. Sandsome", "The Poet And The Emporium", "The Language Of Flowers", "The Literary Regimen", "House-hunting As An Outdoor Amusement", "Of Blades And Bladery", "Of Cleverness", "The Pose Novel", "The Veteran Cricketer", et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
