1923. Although a prolific and popular playwright and novelist during his lifetime, the reputation of Harold Brighouse today rests almost entirely on his play Hobson's Choice. Hepplestall's begins: Rummaging at a bargain-counter I came across an object which puzzled me, and, turning to the shopman, I asked him what it was. He took it up contemptuously. That, he said. Dear me, I thought I'd put it in the dustbin. It's fit for nothing but destruction. And you call it? I persisted. I call it by its name, he said. It's an outworn passion, and a pretty frayed one, too. Look at that! See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
