Victoria Glendinning provides a woman's view of Anthony Trollope, placing emphasis on family, particularly on his relationship with his mother. But it is Anthony as a husband and lover that intrigues her most. She looks at the nature of his love for his wife, Rose and at his love for Kate Field.


  • Glendinning succeeds, as no biographer has done before, in bringing him to life on the page-Here, at last, is an Anthony Trollope whom one can know as a man-The effect is startlingly impressive.
