Wells' social fiction

Love and Mr. Lewisham is the story of a young man who seeks to better himself and achieve glory through educational achievements. His love life, however, derails this ambition in several different ways. This is Wells' exploration of the dilemmas of the young man torn between career and relationship. Wells fans will realize that the ending of the book did not mirror his actual feelings/behavior on marriage.

pretty good book that's not really well known

i just grabbed a book one day from the library and it turned out to be a good story. i was surprised that wells, a big author, wrote such an unknown book. try it out.

Love and mr. Lewisham in The (Surprisingly) Powerful Influence of H.G. Wells on Modern Day America
The (Surprisingly) Powerful Influence of H.G. Wells on Modern Day America
Published by Beth Clark • September 21, 2018

A hundred years ago, novelist H.G. Wells predicted that science would be "king of the world." Titanic's Jack Dawson may take issue with that claim, but he’d have a tough time disputing the compelling influence Wells had on politics, society, and the future that extended far beyond the literary realm. Considering Wells is one the founding fathers of sci-fi (along with Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs) and the author of The Time Machine, The Invisible man, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The War of the Worlds, that's saying something.
