Product description

Review

'his naturalism has an excoriating veracity; relentless in its judgements but fine as well in its attention to detail ... I have never learnt so much from a novel about the actual day-to-day life texture of life in late 19th-century London.'Janet Daley, The Times

Synopsis

New Grub Street (1891), generally regarded as Gissing's finest novel, is the story of the daily lives and broken dreams of men and women forced to earn a living by the pen. With vivid realism it tells of a group of novelists, journalists, and scholars caught in the literary and cultural crisis that hit Britain in the closing years of the nineteenth century, as universal education, popular journalism, and mass communication began to leave their mark on the life of intellectuals. Projecting a strong sense of the London in which his characters struggle, Gissing also illuminates 'the valley of the shadow of books', where the spirit of alienation that created modernism was already stirring.
