Considered by many to be Well?s masterpiece, Tono-Bungay is a social commentary in the vein of Thackaray and Dickens. First published in serial form it tells the story of George Ponderovo who is apprenticed to his Uncle Edward, the inventor of the spurious medicine Tono-Bungay. As Edward grows rich from the profits of his medicine and begins to build a vast empire, George faces a personal breakdown as he watches the mechanisms of a corrupt society at work.
