Product description

Review

"The most impressive of Gissing's books . . . England has produced very few better novelists." --George Orwell

From the Inside Flap

Hailed as Gissing's finest novel," New Grub Street portrays the intrigues and hardships of the publishing world in late Victorian England. In a materialistic, class-conscious society that rewards commercial savvy over artistic achievement, authors and scholars struggle to earn a living without compromising their standards. "Even as the novel chills us with its still-recognizable portrayal of the crass and vulgar world of literary endeavor," writes Francine Prose in her Introduction, "its very existence provides eloquent, encouraging proof of the fact that a powerful, honest writer can transcend the constraints of commerce."
This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the 1891 first edition.
