What to expect

The Jubilee marks the fiftieth year of the reign of Queen Victoria. Dickensian in its sweeping scope of London life, Gissing’s “In the Year of the Jubilee” (1834) depicts the harsh and disreputable conditions of lower-middle class life at the end of the 19th century. Originally titled “Miss Lord of Camberwell,” the novel depicts the adventures of suburban Nancy Lord and an exploration of South London.
