In Britain in the first decades of the 20th century, there was a demand for anything that would help ordinary people better themselves, and Bennett obliged with volumes on Mental Efficiency, how to live 24 hours a day, how to improve ones literary taste, as well as books on the life of a novelist, etc.

Overall, of course, he is deservedly best remembered for such novels as The Old Wives Tale, the Clayhanger Trilogy, and The Card.Enoch Arnold Bennett (1867-1931) was a British novelist. He was born in a modest house in Hanley in the Potteries district of Staffordshire. At age 21 he went to London as a solicitors clerk.

He won a literary competition in Tit Bits magazine in 1889 and was encouraged to take up journalism full time. From 1900 he devoted himself full time to writing, giving up the editorship and writing much serious criticism, and also theatre journalism, one of his special interests. In 1902 Anna of the Five Towns, the first of a succession of stories which detailed life in the Potteries, appeared. In 1908 The Old Wives Tale was published, and was an immediate success throughout the English-speaking world.

His most famous works are the Clayhanger (1910) trilogy and The Old Wives Tale. These books draw on his experience of life in the Potteries, as did most of his best work. Among his other books are: The Grand Babylon Hotel (1902), The Grim Smile of the Five Towns (1907), Hilda Lessways (1911), The Authors Craft (1914), The Lions Share (1916), and The Roll-Call (1919).
