This shamefully battered book is another I've been dragging round for years and never read, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Turns out the Victorian publishing industry was much like it is now, so I found resonance on every page. Also there's a bit where an author runs into a burning building to rescue his book.  Only bit I couldn't identify with was getting the train from London to Brighton in 1.5 hours in a snow storm. Sounds like fantasy.
