Anthony Trollope's heartwarming tales of Christmas, presented in a beautiful hardcover edition perfect for giving as a gift. Christmas at Thompson Hall collects the best Christmas tales of Anthony Trollope, the enormously popular author of the Chronicles of Barsetshire and Palliser series of novels. Mostly set in Trollope's imaginary county of Barsetshire, the stories depict the festive period with all Trollope's trademark zest, humour, and cheerfulness, and offer rich and psychologically acute portrayals of the middle class and gentry of Victorian England at Christmas time. Anthony Trollope (1815-1882) was born in London to a bankrupt barrister father and a mother who, as a well-known writer, supported the family. Trollope enjoyed considerable acclaim both as a novelist and as a senior civil servant in the British Postal Service. He published more than forty novels and many short stories that are regarded by some as among the greatest of nineteenth-century fiction.

    Penguin serien Christmas Classics är en serie av sex böcker med jultema av klassiska författare. Från Dickens En Julsaga till Hoffmans Nötknäpparen är det en intressant samling, där tyvärr den här novell-samlingen av Anthony Trollop är den svagaste boken i serien.

    Trollope är ingen dålig författare. Han har ett fint språk, en del riktigt träffande, kvicka och roliga beskrivningar och han förstår sina karaktärer och förklarar tydligt vad de gör och varför de gör och tänker som de gör... Läs hela recensionen

His books include the great Chronicles of Barsetshire, of which Barchester Towers is the second volume.
