- "Morley Roberts, a minor novelist and man of letters, was born in the same year as Gissing, 1857. He was 55 when he published this thinly-disguised biography of his friend in 1912. Gissing had then been dead for nine years. There are a few definite errors of fact in RobertsŐ account (the details of the death of Nell Gissing, for instance), but they are trivial and due, probably, to a failure of memory rather than any wish to conceal information. His judgement, several times repeated, that Gissing should never have become a novelist, and that if he had had fifty pounds a year he would have written nothing but would have lived in a cottage and 'asphyxiated himself with books' is not likely to find much favour today. However, Roberts knew Gissing intimately, particularly in his early days, and the biography is invaluable as the source of some of the best-known anecdotes about his friendŐs attitudes and behaviour."
