The Trollope Society is holding a garden party at 2:30pm on Sunday 22 June at Casewick Hall, hosted by Hugh Trollope, Anthony’s great-great-grandson, to mark the publication of The First Celebrity: Anthony Trollope’s Australasian Odyssey by Nigel Starck. The book provides further insight into the epic journey undertaken by Trollope and his wife Rose to visit their son Fred who had emigrated to Australia.
Trollope chronicled the journey himself in Australia and New Zealand and earned the disapprobation of Australians by remarking on their boastful nature. Perhaps he was subject to a certain amount of “sledging” from locals on his travels. Maybe Nigel Starck’s book will shed further light on this?
