Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trollope's magnificent and prescient satire about a dishonest financier who buys his way into a corrupt society, and throws it into turmoil
 
When the Melmottes arrive in London everyone agrees their manners are wanting, their taste is execrable, and their lineage and background decidedly shadowy. But their money is far from revolting, and city society quickly makes allowances for the mysterious financier and his family. Soon hearts, minds, and family savings are swept into the whirl of Augustus Melmotte's lavish parties and exciting investment plans—but is it all an elaborate swindle?

Synopsis:

This is a reproduction of a book published before 1923. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, have elected to bring it back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide. We appreciate your understanding of the imperfections in the preservation process, and hope you enjoy this valuable book.

About the Author

Anthony Trollope (1815–1882) established a successful career in the post office while also writing more than 40 novels, as well as short stories. He enjoyed considerable acclaim during his lifetime and is best remembered for the Barsetshire Chronicles. His admirers include Lady Antonia Fraser, Jonathan Raban, Ruth Rendell, and Gore Vidal as well as Tolstoy, Henry James, Browning, and George Eliot, who said that his talent for assembling seemingly unremarkable incidents into an absorbing plot was "among the subtleties of art which can hardly be appreciated except by those who have striven after the same result with conscious failure."
