Overview

Orphaned at an early age, Artie Kipps is stunned to discover upon reading a newspaper that he is the grandson of a wealthy gentleman—and the inheritor of his fortune. Thrown dramatically into the upper classes, he struggles to learn the etiquette and rules of polite society. But, as he soon discovers, becoming a “true gentleman” is neither as easy nor as desirable as it first appears. Kipps is a hilarious tale of one man’s struggle for selfimprovement and a witty satire of pretension.

  • Features a newly established text, biographical essay on Wells, suggestions for further reading, and detailed notes
