a husband is a whole-time job. That is why so many husbands fail. They cannot give their whole attention to it." So wrote Arnold Bennett more than thirty years ago. The husband in Anthony Gilbert's new story would have delighted Mr. Bennett's heart. To him being a husband was a vocation, a profession, a career. At one time he must have been the most-married man in England, and he showed a skill in ridding himself of superfluous or outmoded wives that Henry VIM himself might have envied.
