The History of Mr. Polly by H. G. Wells

Traces a character through much of his life, with increasingly interesting plot lines changing at the turning points in the character’s life. From losing friends, marrying poorly, becoming bitter at doing nothing through life but a lower-middle class business, and a battle with himself and some others around him leads to some choices which pull himself out of his ordinary existence by righting a few wrongs along the way. Very well written “arguments.”
