Sample from The Hole in the Wall Blurb Written By V.S. Pritchett
THE HOLE IN THE WALL
" ARTHUR MORRISON is an artist and can tell a story. And when he wrote The Hole in the Wall in 1902 he wrote a story that, to my mind, is one of the minor masterpieces of this century. It is a thriller—that is to say, a story of fear, fear as it is disclosed to the mind of a trusting child who is put down into the most violent part of Dockland in the days of the Ratcliffe Highway. "In the region of the old Ratcliffe Highway, the locks, the jetties, the lights, the police notices, the pubs of Dockland, the people are marked by evil. It is real evil. Thieving, pimping, swindling, plotting, knifing and murdering pollute the air. Each character is marked by real wickedness. And wickedness is squalor. There are no completely good characters. Environment has marked them all. The boy's adored grandfather is a fence, and we must admire the delicacy of the author, who gradually edges the old man towards reform without sacrificing any of his masterful shrewdness, slyness and violence of character.
"There was a London like this—we are convinced—seedy, clumsy and hungry, murderous and sentimental. Those shrieks were heard. There were those even more disturbing silences in the night. Dockland, where the police used to go in threes, has its authentic commemoration."
