YOU’VE NEVER READ ANTHONY TROLLOPE?

“Trollope will remain one of the most trustworthy...of the writers who have helped the heart of man to know itself.”—Henry James

Trollope was a writer, like Jane Austen, who chronicled the everyday, and in his portraits of ordinary life he managed to illuminate essential truths about human nature. The Way We Live Now is his masterpiece, a satire of society and commerce in 1870s London. True love, familial duty, greed, power, and corruption mingle in a book that feels as exciting and relevant today as it did more than a hundred years ago.

THE WAY WE LIVE NOW, by Anthony Trollope (1875; Oxford University Press, 1999)

Honestly, not that great, JMO. He is a good writer, though. Who isn't, if they put their mind to it, right? But not my cup of tea, ya know?
