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.

UK Kirkus Review » Trollope is actually jolly good, in spite of the hearty philistinism of his braying groupies. He understood the English middle classes, in their extraordinary ordinariness, better than most. I never think he is quite in the same league as Dickens, George Eliot, and one book by Thackeray. Victoria Glendinning is in love with him, and is just about the best literary biographer in the world at the height of her powers. She has sent me back to the oeuvre, which is gratifyingly huge (part of the attraction for Trollopians: they never need read anything else), and persuaded me that he is good on women, and no more anti-Semitic than his John Bull contemporaries. Review by Philip Howard (Kirkus UK)
