Full Description

Evans shows how ideas about gender and race in Britain from the 1880s through the 1930s shaped - and were shaped by - London and its literature. She considers canonical realist and modernist authors, from George Gissing to Virginia Woolf, alongside understudied colonial writers like Duse Mohamed Ali and Una Marson.
