The Grim Smile of the Five Towns is the second major collection of stories written by Arnold Bennett. The book first appeared in print in June 1907. Only around half of the stories had previously... More > appeared in print.Bennett anticipated that the collection would help to establish his stature as a writer, showing that he could rise above what he termed his "potboilers". But the book had some initial sharp criticism from press reviewers. Critics focussed especially on the macabre story "In a New Bottle" (the Staffordshire Sentinel called it "nasty" and The Bookman termed it "grotesque") and on the sexual frankness of the long story "The Death of Simon Fuge". For instance the 1907 Spectator review remarked that "Simon Fuge"... "very much oversteps the boundaries of good taste".
