Collins is known almost exclusively as the author of The Moonstone and The Woman In White. This is a shame, because his "problem" novels have as many twists as his thrillers, and provide unusual insight on 19th century lives. Man and Wife begins as a bedroom farce, and ends as a Gothic thriller, an unlikely, but not impossible outcome to those familiar with real life domestic crime stories. The author of the introduction poo-poos Collins's contention that the worship of sports and physical culture has a poor affect on one's character. He is possibly not aware of European culture leading up to WW I, or the antics of modern professional athletes.
