Product Description

The Way They Lived ThenThe Way They Lived Then: Serious Interviews, Strong Women, and Lessons for Life in the Novels of Anthony Trollope reviews all forty-seven of Trollope’s novels, a little known trove of leisurely examinations of the world of nineteenth century England. Writing with the casual authority of one who has enjoyed reading these works for some forty years, Taylor Prewitt has given us a new look at this energetic writer. Trollope’s novels are a hidden treasure; they provide a sly and a wry look at the world of the Victorians.

About the Author

Taylor Prewitt began reading the novels of Anthony Trollope to help understand the BBC television series The Pallisers that appeared while he and his family were spending the year 1974 in England. His day job was at the Brompton Hospital as a fellow in cardiology. He continued both with cardiology and Trollope, and soon after he retired from his cardiology practice in Fort Smith, Arkansas, in 2003, he finished reading all of Trollope’s novels. He plays tennis, basketball, and golf with his seven grandchildren; his wife plays cards with them, and he reads stories to them whenever they will sit still. He is the author of Reciting Robert Frost in the ICU: Essays in the Literature of Medicine and several other collections of book reviews.
