The Crown of Life.

First American edition. “A late and surprisingly romantic novel for Gissing, written at a period when his second marriage was falling apart ... As a political sub-plot the novel ... the novel explores British imperialism in the period of the Boer War from the author’s increasingly pacifistic standpoint.” (John Sutherland)
