Arthur Morrison

Arthur Morrison (1863–1945) was an English novelist and journalist best known for his depictions of the British working class in the slums of London’s East End. After working his way up from clerk to contributor, his first serious journalism appeared in the Globe. Hewitt’s popular detective stories featuring private investigator Martin Hewitt are considered the most successful of the numerous rivals to Arthur Conan Doyle’s tales of Sherlock Holmes.
