    A really good early work Gissing presents his story in an England where the middle class is indifferent to the monarch s anniversary, the working class use it merely as an excuse to get drunk and the police stewarding of the crowds is an opportunity for gratuitous viol...

    Strong writing, interesting characters, and a story that kept me reading Not exactly inspiring, especially for women, and the ending didn t seem justified beyond a main character just being a jerk I m not quite sure what Gissing intended or how this fits with his other novels.

    Progressive women, first advertising man in Literature, great characterizations and interesting plots A bit hard to read in the old fashion way it s written but worth it.
