A new Trollope…well almost


John Wirenius has taken up the challenge of what might have become of Trollope’s eponymous hero Phineas Finn. Taking the characters into the last decades of the Victorian era, he imagines how Finn and other characters from the Political novels might have fared. He brings back Lizzie Eustace, which is inviting trouble in any plotline as she is rather inclined to have her own way, and a younger generation of Vavasors, as well as familiar faces like Madame Max.

It isn’t Trollope, but it isn’t trying to be. Is it successful? Read Phineas At Bay  for yourself and see…
