This was the new metropolitan disease Trollope set out to brilliantly expose in The Way We Live Now. His milieux are the City's financial institutions, London's exclusive West End squares and drones clubs populated by, languorous aristocrats, all offering rich pickings for the unscrupulous speculator, whether in the marriage or the money market. Among the unscrupulous are the hack-writer Lady Carbury, or her son Felix and, above all, Melmotte, a financier of uncertain origins and Napoleonic ruthlessness, energy and charm, whose dramatic rise and fall dominates the novel.

About the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882) established a successful career in the Post Office whilst also writing over forty novels, plus short stories. He enjoyed considerable acclaim during his lifetime. He is best remembered for the Barsetshire Chronicles.

Industry Reviews

"The Way We Live Now is the essence of Trollope. If he had written no other novel, it would have ensured his immortality."
