The Way We Live Now ~ BIG READ

From 12 April to 5 July 2021 we will be reading The Way We Live Now together on Zoom.

Join Trollope enthusiasts from across the world every two weeks to discuss The Way We Live Now as we read it together.

Hugh Walpole in ‘Anthony Trollope’ said The Way We Live Now was ‘… one of the most remarkable of all English novels published between 1860 and 1890. This novel, had it been written by any one else or had it been published anonymously, would never have been allowed to pass out of English fiction, but because it came after a long series of novels by the same hand, and because its author had been for some years before its appearance far too readily ‘taken for granted’ by the critics, its remarkable qualities remained unperceived.’
