The Regent by Arnold Bennett

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In this sequel to ‘The Card’, Edward Henry Machin (Denry Machin for short) continues his adventures and opportunism - from unexpected stock market gains to becoming the proprietor of a well known and respected London Theatre - where he finds that he is 'practically also a theatrical manager with a play to produce, artistes to engage, and the public to attract'. Bennett succeeds as before in delighting the reader with his jocular humour and commentary upon human nature.
