  • "Alfred Polly decides to escape the drudgery of his existence by burning down his shop."
  • "Mr Polly is an ordinary middle-aged man who is tired of his wife's nagging and his dreary job as the owner of a regional gentleman's outfitters. Unexpected events, however, conspire at the last moment to lead the bewildered Mr Polly to a bright new future."@en
  • "When Mr. Polly grows tired of his wife's nagging and his job as the owner of a regional gentleman's outfitters, he concludes that the only way to escape his sad existence is by burning his shop to the ground and killing himself."
  • "Miles away from the fabulous science fiction for which Wells is best known, this comic romp unspools the unlikely story of a timid, financially strapped, unhappily married shopkeeper whose plan to do away with himself fails miserably and in fact inspires him to do something adventurous with his life. Wells himself called this one of my good books.""
  • "The History of Mr. Polly is a 1910 comic novel by H.G. Wells. Alfred Polly is a quiet, timid and direction-less young man living in Edwardian England, in the town of Fishbourne, West Sussex (although the town in the story is thought to be based on Sandgate, Kent where Wells lived for several years). Polly enjoys reading books of knightly endeavours more than his jobs in a draper's shops, and several times his daydreaming mind loses him his job. After the death of his father, a man he had little in common with, he's left a little money in the inheritance and at the funeral he meets Miriam Lark."@en
  • "The career of an unsuccessful, imaginative tradesman who, on sudden impulse, vanishes while his house is on fire and roams about on whimsical adventure. For other editions, see Author Catalog."
  • "When Mr. Polly grows tired of his wife's nagging and his job as the owner of a regional gentleman's outfitters, he concludes that the only way to escape his sad existence is by burning his shop to the ground and killing himself--Novelist."
