Product Description:

Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge is one of his best-known novels. It begins with a wife-selling, an event not as uncommon in British rural history as one might like to suppose. Atlantic Monthly called it ""a strong, vivid story"" and thought Hardy ""more virile and humourous than the mob of lesser novelists who write with alarming ease."
