|Zangwill in his study, an 1893 illustration from The Idler, a magazine edited by Jerome K Jerome and Robert Barr|
Moving Here catalogue reference (JML) 1296.1
Israel Zangwill, the novelist, was the greatest chronicler of London's Jewish East End. His candid portraits of immigrant life gave wider society a human insight into their lives. Zangwill was in a unique position to fulfill this role, both coming from a Jewish background and being very much a part of literary London in Edwardian England.
