A lesser-known novel of social satire from the author of The War of the Worlds

Mr. Polly is an ordinary middle-aged man who is tired of his wife's nagging and his dreary job as a gentleman's outfitter in a small town. Faced with the threat of bankruptcy, he concludes that the only way to escape his frustrating existence is by burning his shop to the ground and killing himself.

Unexpected events, however, conspire at the last moment to lead the bewildered Mr. Polly to a bright new future―after he saves a life, fakes his death, and escapes to a world of heroism, hope, and ultimate happiness.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.
