From the Back Cover:
Trollope was born in 1815, the product of a formidable mother and a tragically unsuccessful father who was socially ambitious for his sons. Poor, ill-dressed, awkward, and sullen, he was the victim of vicious bullying at Harrow and Winchester. But he had inherited his mother's determination, and managed later to carve out a successful career in the General Post Office while devoting every spare moment to writing. In this book, Trollope looks back on his life with some satisfaction.
About the Author:
Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) started his writing career while working in Ireland as a postal surveyor. Travelling around the country, Trollope gained knowledge of the country and its people which proved to be useful material for his first two novels, The Macdermots of Ballycloran (1847) and The Kellys and the O'Kellys (1848). Trollope soon started writing fiercely, producing a series entitled Chronicles of Barsetshire. The Warden, the first in the series, was published in 1855. Barchester Towers (1857), the comic masterpiece, Doctor Thorne (1858), Framley Parsonage (1861), The Small House at Allington (1864) and The Last Chronicle of Barset (1867) followed, portraying events in an imaginary English county of Barsetshire. In 1867, Trollope left the Post Office to run as a candidate for the Parliament. Having lost at the elections, Trollope focused on his writing. A satire from his later writing, The Way We Live Now (1875) is often viewed as Trollope's major work, however, his popularity and writing reputation diminished at the later stage of his life. Anthony Trollope died in London in 1882.

Paperback. Condition: COLLECTIBLE- NEAR FIN. First Edition, First Printing. Text/NEW. First Edition, First Printing. Softcover w/photo portrait of Trollope/NF.Trace soiing to front cover verso & fEP. 335 pgs. in 20 chapters. Autobiography of long beloved English novelist and civil servant Anthony Trollope (1815- 1882) of the Victorian era, known for the series Chronicles of Barsetshire, Trollope was prolific & disciplined. . Having publsihing some 47 works including novels on political, social, gender issues & other topical matters, led many to suspect he wrote for monetary gains alone. This autobiography, written between 1875/1876, posthumously published 1883, was an instant success. In this candide book Trollope shared his to writing --- revealing he strictly fulfilled a daily writing quota, with expectations of revenue. Given his civil service career (postal service), and, a last minute loss of designated family inheritance, ought he be denied being an artist sensitive to financial pragmaticsm? Romantically inclined, literally critics would have him write only when "inspired". Here, Trollope, the man, the artist, the writer speaks for himself. Seller Inventory # 020016
