I thought I would share one or two of the responses to our straw poll of best (non-series) Trollope novel over the coming days.
Here’s what Craig Baxter had to say about his choice: Lady Anna
“It was the first one I read and so it was my introduction to Trollope but, having read several (though by no means all) now, I find it was the best, telling its story so delicately and wittily through a combination of characters’ dialogue and narrator’s wry asides.”
Thanks Craig. I think you’re spot on about the dialogue in Lady Anna. Trollope does have an ear for dialogue that makes it sound right when reproduced on the page.
Do others agree? Do you have other titles that you want to put forward?
