Review:

'Coustillas's monumental The Heroic Life is itself heroic, and thanks to him readers will be able to see Gissing, and the extraordinary achievement of his fiction, from more than just one side.' Victorian Studies 'this biography is both stunningly researched and also clearly written. In its range, originality, depth and detail, it not only leaves behind all previous biographies of Gissing but most biographies of any kind.' Etudes Anglaises 'The Heroic Life of George Gissing will delight his admirers' The Observer 'a fitting culmination to what is very nearly a lifetime's work' D J Taylor, Times Literary Supplement (2011 and 2012 Books of the Year) 'a biography that must come close to being definitive' The Gissing Journal 'a book marked by unprecedented detail. Recommended' CHOICE 'detailed, authoritative, compendius' Literary Review 'an unequivocal accomplishment, and a thoroughly enjoyable read' The Floating Academy 'A finely honed, remarkably detailed picture of the writer emerges, which in its sympathetic, informed and attentive engagement is unlikely to be surpassed.' English Literature in Transition 1880-1920 'Coustillas brings acuity to the study of Gissing's early life and work.' The Year's Work in English Studies
