display_description'Kipps', also known as 'The Remarkable Mr. Kipps', is a novel by H. G. Wells. It marks a turning point for the author, moving away from the futuristic science fiction for which he is famed and onto more down-to-earth accounts of twentieth-century British society. Within it, Wells clearly draws from his own knowledge of Britain's social structure to present an interesting autobiographical tale. Contents include: 'The Little Shop at New Romney', 'The Emporium', 'The Woodcarving Class', 'Chitterlow', ''Swapped!'', 'The Unexpected', 'The Walshinghams', 'Engaged', 'The Bicycle Manufacturer', 'The Pupil Lover', 'Discords', 'London', 'Kipps Enters Society', 'The Labyrinthodon', et cetera. Includes a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
