Trollope, Anthony: The Way We Live Now, v1, 12 Oct 2007.

‘The Way We Live Now’ was first published in 1875.

My favourite Trollope novel. This is not part of a series. It explores several themes: money and speculation in the second half of the nineteenth century – its treament reminds me of the Thatcherite entrepeneurs of the 1980s. The novels also questions what it is like to be a Jew in a Gentile society (and, to a lesser extent, a Catholic in an Anglican one).
One of the central character, the speculator, Melmotte, may well remind Britons of Robert Maxwell and Americans of Ivan Boesky. This is a world where everything is commodified; even marriage and literature.
