New Grub Street by George Gissing ( Book )
163 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 2,442 libraries worldwide
"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."" "This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the text of the 1891 first edition."--Jacket.
