This book “Born in Exile” is different from the other works of the author. In Born in Exile perhaps we have one of the first credible tales of the "Outsider" in literature. It is credible because it is written by a man form the lower middle class allowed to rise into literary aspiration and skill by grammar school education. This book shows how he tries to break into their world and sadly how he tries to disguise what he truly is for the sake of this acceptance. It can be said that Gissing lived this book. Anyone who has had to lift him or herself up by their bootlaces and conquer their humble or difficult circumstances in life may well appreciate what this book describes, so early in the day of social transition. Also the intellectual strifes of the day - religion v. science, the idea of the "Two Nations" - form an exciting backcloth to this novel. A highly enlightening book for the readers of all classess!
