Gissing, George: New Grub Street. v1. 9 Dec 2019

New Grub Street is a novel by George Gissing published in 1891, which is set in the literary and journalistic circles of 1880s London. The story deals with the literary world that Gissing himself had experienced. Its title refers to the London street, Grub Street, which in the 18th century became synonymous with hack literature; by Gissing's time, Grub Street itself no longer existed, though hack-writing certainly did. Its two central characters are a sharply contrasted pair of writers: Edwin Reardon, a novelist of some talent but limited commercial prospects, and a shy, cerebral man; and Jasper Milvain, a young journalist, hard-working and capable of generosity, but cynical and only semi-scrupulous about writing and its purpose in the modern (i.e. late Victorian) world.

I used the version from the University of Adelaide for this edition. Quite a bit of formatting had to be fixed -- I hope I've caught all missing italics...

I'm not sure where you're based, but a quick note from the UK. For some years, BBC Radio 4 have been running a series about a hack writer desperately trying to make ends meet in the current literary marketplace. I find it very funny - and it's called 'Ed Reardon's Week'.

I read New Grub Street abvout 30 years ago, and it took me ages to make the connection.

Thank you for making this: I look forward to reading it again.

I'm in Germany and haven't heard of that BBC4 series. Sounds intriguing. I'll try to find it. Thanks for the tip!

Grub Street was late renamed Milton Street, and is now lined with huge glass offices.
