Look inside the book:

The number of those who have attempted to write familiarly of the seamy side of our great citiesPg 14 from close observation and laborious study of its life in a first-hand fashion is so small that it is easy to believe that the author of 'Tales of Mean Streets,' possessing as he does the prime qualities of a novelist, has a future before him in an unprecedented form of literature.

...On Sunday morning a smell of cooking floats round the corner from the half-shut baker's, and the little feet trot down the street under steaming burdens of beef, potatoes, and batter pudding-thePg 20 lucky little feet these, with Sunday boots on them, when father is in good work and has brought home all his money; not the poor little feet in worn shoes, carrying little bodies in the threadbare clothes of all the week, when father is out of work, or ill, or drunk, and the Sunday cooking may very easily be done at home,-if any there be to do.

...And allPg 36 through the later of these weeks Billy Chope was harder than ever on his mother, and she, well knowing that if he helped her by taking home he would pocket the money at the other end, had taken to finishing and delivering in his absence, and, threats failing to get at the money, Billy Chope was impelled to punch her head and gripe her by the throat.
