Riceyman Steps(Including 'Elsie And the Child') (Twentieth Century Classics) By
A window on the world of misers--their impact on themselves and others. Surely the author must have been intimately acquainted with people contaminated with the disease. Riceyman Steps gives great view of ish England and a few good laughs. Memorable enough to be able to put it down and pick it up weeks later.

One person found this helpful. Why do I return to 'Riceyman Steps' every six years or so? Who can resist it? Arnold Bennett has created a fascinating world, one that we as readers are privileged to enter. The basic story and characters grab you immediately; you NEED to know what will happen, you want desperately for it all to turn out well.
Bennett understands how fragile we all are, and yet how our passions can drive us. His understanding of the human heart is as perfect as 'Riceyman Steps. Don't miss this one! Utterly engrossing tale of bookseller Mr Earlforward, who becomes taken with neighbouring shopkeeper Mrs Arb when he sees how prudent she is with money she refuses to pay the full shilling for one of his books.
For the bookseller's grand passion in life is saving money in every possible way. I loved the description of Mrs Arb having a nose round her suitor's shabby home prior to the wedding: Impossible to enter this room because of books; but Mrs Arb did the impossible, and after some excavation with her foot disclosed a bath, which was full to the brim and overflowing with books.

The blinds were drawn, the curtains were drawn; electric current was burning, if not the gas fire; despite the blackness of the hearth the room had an air, or half an air, of domestic cosiness. Violet poured out the tea, an operation simplified by the total absence of sugar.
There are issues with Elsie eating too much; and Elsie is pining for her young man who is disturbed from shell shock I can't recommend this work enough. It's set in a very small environment, yet Bennett's brilliant understanding of human behaviour makes it utterly enthralling. The novel, Riceyman Steps, though nowhere as successful as his best work Old Wives Tale, nonetheless deserves plaudits for ambition and its tight focus on three expertly-drawn characters.
The sentences are beautiful and give profound insights into characters, but lack of incident and forward action leave us with little desire to proceed.
Characters don't really make choices to change their fate; instead, they live on and on, with the occasional traumatic episode thrown in for good measure. The best thing about the work is how avoids stereotypes about character types; for example, a miser may have real qualms about spending money, but can be persuaded in the right context to spend lavishly though later he will resent doing so.
