(2006). Amid the Dear Old Horrors: memory, London, and literary labour in 'The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft'.
In: Spiers, John ed.
Gissing and the city: cultural crisis and the making of books in Late Victorian Engand.
London, UK: Palgrave Macmillan, pp. 171–179.
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.
