The old wives' tale by Arnold Bennett( Book )
426 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 5,295 libraries worldwide
The Old Wives' Tale (1908) celebrates the romance of even the most ordinary lives in the course of tracing the passage of time over three generations. It tells the story of the two Baines sisters, placid stay-at-home Constance and rebellious Sophia, from their girlhood to their last days. They move from the family drapery shop in provincial Bursley during the repressive mid-Victorian period to old age in the modern era of mass marketing and the internal combustion engine. The setting ranges from the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in Bursley to a Paris brothel, the action from the controlled domestic routine of the Baines household to wife murder and the Siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1

Anna of the five towns by Arnold Bennett( Book )
246 editions published between 1902 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,894 libraries worldwide
This was the first of Bennett's novels to mark out the province of the Five Towns where much of his later fiction is set. Drawing on his boyhood experience of the Staffordshire Potteries area, he shows both the vitality and the harshness of life in the community. Yet although the events of the novel - including suicide and embezzlement - are sensational, the narrative is restrained and compelling in its delineation of Anna's attempts to gain freedom and independence

Imperial palace by Arnold Bennett( Book )
64 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,201 libraries worldwide
The central figure of the book is the Imperial Palace, a super-luxury hotel, "the kind of hotel whose directors are gods, whose managers are archangels, whose myriad head-waiters and staff are the choir of cherubim and seraphim." This vast and splendidly organized hotel is the creation of that artist among hotel-managers, Evelyn Orcham, and like every one else on its staff he is enslaved to it. Just for a moment he is deflected by the heady charms of Gracie Savott, who deliberately tempts him, but he returns to the more soberly satisfying Violet Powler, head housekeeper of the Imperial Palace, whose allegiance to the hotel is as strong as his own

Yes, he's one of those men that don't know how to manage. Good situation. Regular income. Quite enough for luxuries as well as needs. Not really extravagant. And yet the fellow's always in difficulties. Somehow he gets nothing out of his money. Excellent flat--half empty! Always looks as if he'd had the brokers in. New suit--old hat! Magnificent necktie--baggy trousers! Asks you to dinner: cut glass--bad mutton, or Turkish coffee--cracked cup! He can't understand it. Explanation simply is that he fritters his income away. Wish I had the half of it! I'd show him

Mental efficiency, and other hints to men and women by Arnold Bennett( Book )
61 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 libraries worldwide
The mind can only be conquered by regular meditation, by deciding beforehand what direction its activity ought to take, and insisting that its activity takes that direction; also by never leaving it idle, undirected, masterless, to play at random like a child in the streets after dark. This is extremely difficult, but it can be done, and it is marvellously well worth doing. The fault of the epoch is the absence of meditativeness. A sagacious man will strive to correct in himself the faults of his epoch. In some deep ways the twelfth century had advantages over the twentieth. It practised medit
