H.G. Wells: Aspects of a Life is a biography of H.G. Wells written by his son, Anthony West.


This entertaining and controversial biography of the man who was for three decades one of England's best-known writers and who was called "an important liberator of thought and action" by Bertrand Russell gives the reader as clear a picture of his professional career as it does of his complicated personal life. Its opening section clears up what has become a vexed question for all student of Wells' affairs: just how important to him was his much publicized relationship with his fellow author, the brilliant, often crispy witty Rebecca West?
