Tales of Mean Streets

by Arthur Morrison

Without sentiment, glorification, or preaching, but with complete detachment, Morrison describes the lives of charwomen, pimps, and workers drifting down to destruction; their shabby attempts to retain respectability; and the perpetual danger of slipping into a life of crime for those living in the mean streets of London's East End.
