Although Sir Isaac Harman didn't think much of the suffragette movement, his female employees certainly did, and he thought it prescient that he too should do his bit for women's rights. His wife totally agreed, so he locked her up. However, this gesture was to have far-reaching reverberations as Sir Isaac's wife becomes the absolute embodiment of women's independence. "The Wife of Sir Isaac Harman" is a novel by H. G. Wells, first written in 1914. Contents include: "Introduces Lady Harman", "The Personality of Sir Isaac", "Lady Harman at Home", "The Beginnings of Lady Harman", "The World according to Sir Isaac", "The Adventurous Afternoon", "Lady Harman learns about Herself", "Sir Isaac as Petruchio", "Mr. Brumley is troubled by Difficult Ideas", 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). 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.
