A cruel joke at a country fair goes too far when a drunken laborer auctions off his wife and child to the highest bidder. Rich in descriptive powers and steeped in irony, Hardy's gripping tale unfolds amid a rural English community. It offers a spellbinding portrayal of ambition, rivalry, revenge, and repentance.

Author Biography - Thomas Hardy

Tragedy haunts the works of Thomas Hardy (1840 1928), whose fiction abounds in star-crossed lovers and other characters thwarted by fate or their own shortcomings. Hardy's outspoken criticism of Victorian society excited such profound controversy that the author abandoned fiction and in the 20th century published only poetry."
