Mod Lib New Grub Street


Formats & editions


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.'
