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.
'Majestic, capacious, compelling and clear-sighted.' Daily Telegraph; '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.' Independent on Sunday; 'Enormously enjoyable.' John Mortimer, Books of the Year, Sunday Times; 'A work as readable, richly shifting and well-shaped as a good novel...compendiously well-informed.' The Times; 'A brilliant and subtle interweaving of the man and the work; wonderful.' Joanna Trollope, Books of the Year, Daily Telegraph
