wpid-buried-alive-tale-these-days-arnold-bennett-paperback-cover-art.jpgBuried Alive is a fictional novel by Arnold Bennett. Published in 1908, the book was made into a movie entitled Holy Matrimony in 1943. This is a satire about an accomplished British artist and his valet. The valet, Henry Leek dies after a brief illness and is mistakenly taken to be his shy, reclusive employer, Priam Farll, who is very much alive. With little forethought, Farll decides not to correct the error. The ensuing events are comical and Farll gets much more than the anonymity he bargained for.

I enjoyed the book even more than the movie even though there is little difference between the two. I trust my readers will as well!
