The Warden tops Hatchards Poll

Hatchards announced last week that The Warden, the first novel in Trollope’s Barchester series, was its number one novel of the last 200 years. The shop which has been open since 1797 was uniquely placed to make the decision based on not only readers’ votes but also on sales figures of all of the shortlisted books going right back to the date of publication, which, in the case of The Warden, was 1855. 

Congratulations to Trollope in his own bicentenary year.
