A collection of short stories based on the journalist's knowledge of the life of the poor in Victorian London. Wonderful.

I thought this book would be all doom and gloom as the title impies but it is actually a really up-beat and funny descriptive of the times and is also(in a irreverant and deliciously politically in-correct way)very relevant in our day

Some of the tales are tragi-comedy and some are just plain sad but there are lessons that should have been learned. Arthur Morrison could just as well been writing about some council estate in Shadsworth or Shippingsworth in 2009.

I despair what our beautful land has come to. At least in those days "That brute, Mr Simmons" never never never was comfortable in his ridiculously ill-fitting trousers!
