New Grub Street (1891), George Gissing's most highly regarded novel, is the story of men and women forced to make their living by writing. Their daily lives and broken dreams, made and marred by the rigors of urban life and the demands of the fledgling mass communications industry, are presented with vivid realism and unsentimental sympathy. Its telling juxtaposition of the writing careers of the clever and malicious Jaspar Milvain and the honest and struggling Edward Reardon quickly made New Grub Street into a classic work of late Victorian fiction.

John Goode is a Professor of English at Keele University.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
