Arthur Morrison's (1863-1945) 'realist' tales of East End life in London were first published in MACMILLAN'S MAGAZINE and later collected as TALES OF MEAN STREETS.He is best remembered for A CHILD OF THE JAGO which describes the boyhood of Dick Perott in an East End slum off Shoreditch High Street,and gives a vivid account of the violent crime in the neighbourhood.Dicky's father is hanged for murder and Dicky must struggle to follow his better instincts in spite of his vicious environment.Resembling the earlier work os Somerset Maughn,A CHILD OF THE JAGOis a brutal but touching honesty.
