    Kipps

    As there is a new production of the musical "Half a Sixpence" about to be staged at Windsor I was interested in looking at "Kipps" the book on which the musical is based. To my surprise this is not listed in H.G Wells list of books and when I tried a search I was told there were no results.

    Half a sixpence did strike me as familiar. I did not know it was a musical based on Kipps. I have started reading it. It is quite funny. It is not the least bit like his science fiction.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.
