New Grub Street, Paperback / softback Book

Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ANTHONY QUINNGrub Street - where would-be writers aim high, publishers plumb the depths and literature is a trade, never a calling.

In a literary world disfigured by greed and explotation, two very different writers rise and fall: Edward Reardon, a novelist whose high standards prevent him from pandering to the common taste, and Jasper Milvain, who possesses no such scruples.

Gissing's dark and darkly funny novel presents a little-seen but richly absorbing slice of nineteeth-century society.
