Synopsis
This text is one of the last unpublished Gissing documents. It is a small notebook containing observations of people and places, many of which found their way into the books to come out of his last years. There are also entries revealing domestic details of the last years of his second marriage to Edith Underwood, itineraries and other travel details of the holiday in Switzerland in 1899 with the last woman of his life, Gabrielle Fleury. Entries also document the increasingly desperate search for health, his stay in the East Anglian Sanatorium at Nayland, and the attempt to ward off the fatal threat of consumption at Arcachon, all filling out the picture of Gissing, the man and the writer.
