Abstract

This chapter examines George Gissing's last novel 'The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft', arguing that it not only manifests a strange nostalgia for the 'horrors' of London and the struggling writer's life so often described by Gissing, but that it also displays proto-Modernist tendencies in its narrative style.
