Description
George Ponderevo tells how he is enlisted to help with the promotion of Tono-Bungay, a cure-all tonic created by his ambitious uncle Edward. Unfortunately, Tono-Bungay is actually a harmful stimulant that cures nothing, yet it flies off the shelves. George reluctantly becomes rich, and ricochets between his unsuccessful marriage to Marion, his affair with the liberated Effie, and his doomed relationship with the Hon. Beatrice Normandy, a childhood friend. When the Tono-Bungay empire begins to crumble, George tries to prop up his uncle's finances by stealing a radioactive compound from an African island. H.G. Wells's 1909 book offers a darkly hilariously take on rapacious industries and the shams of modern marketing. This 2010 edition breathes new life into one of the author's nearly forgotten early works, with an introduction by contemporary writer Paul Torday and a cover designed by two winners of Britain's Design & Art Direction student competition.
