Mrs. Bindle

Mrs. Bindle by Herbert George Jenkins
By: (1876-1923)

Herbert Jenkins' most popular fictional creation was Mr. Joseph Bindle, who first appeared in a humorous novel in 1916 and in a number of sequels. In the preface to the books, T. P. O'Connor said that "Bindle is the greatest Cockney that has come into being through the medium of literature since Dickens wrote Pickwick Papers". The stories are based on the comedic drama of life at work, at home and all the adventures that take place along the way. It becomes clear as the stories progress that Bindle would not be who he is without Mrs. Bindle, and this book seeks to tell the stories of the Bindles from the distaff point of view.

MRS BINDLE

SOME INCIDENTS FROM THE DOMESTIC LIFE OF THE BINDLES

WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT

Ever since the success achieved by Bindle , Herbert Jenkins has been urged to write giving Mrs. Bindle's point of view. This book is the result.

Among other things, it narrates how Mrs. Bindle caught a chill, how a nephew was born to her and what effect it had upon her outlook.

It tells how she encountered a bull, and what happened to the man who endeavoured to take forcible possession of her home.

She is shown as breaking a strike by precipitating a lock out, burning incense to her brother in law, Mr. Hearty, and refusing the armistice that was offered.

One chapter tells of her relations with her neighbours. Another deals with a musical evening she planned, and yet a third of how she caught a chill and was in great fear of heaven.
