New Grub Street Reviews

"Few novels detail with such sparkling, bitter intelligence the emotional and financial toll that creating and publishing fiction can take on a writer's life. Yet, for all its bleakness, Gissing's satire remains a compelling read and a bracing book to teach, because it captures, like no other Victorian novel, the strains of innovation and enervation that alternately inspire and beleaguer its weary idealists and cunning pragmatists. New Grub Street has fresh relevance for us, as Stephen Arata's skilful introduction makes clear, because all its major themes--the pressures of commerce, financial precariousness, dwindling interest in literature and print journalism, and concern about maintaining a serious forum for art and ideas--are, if anything, even more urgent matters today." -- Christopher Lane, Northwestern University, author of Hatred and Civility: The Antisocial Life in Victorian England (2004)
