Trollope gives direct instruction on virtuous work. In his case, he followed his bliss of novel writing while working for a steady income in government service innovating efficient mail delivery guidelines for Ireland. I am changed by Trollope's moral strength. For him, all action follows from character. The narrator is a 19th century elderly voice. The narrator was brilliant.

Trollope is a fovorite author, so I enjoyed the added depth this book provided. It is very idiosyncratic, and Trollope obviously vented as he was not writing for his own contemporary reading public. The long list of his life's earnings from his novels, I found peculiar and petty, but then, I wonder if Trollope imagined readers decades after his death, plodding through it, and had a last laugh. The reader was perfect-I thought I was listening to Trollope himself.

What did you like most about Trollope?
His dry wit is wonderful
What was one of the most memorable moments of Trollope?
it was a surprise how horrid a childhood he had suffered.
What aspect of Bernard Mayes’s performance might you have changed?
The fact that it sounded as it it been recorded in a living room with a blanket over the actors head was disturbing. And at points made it impossible to hear what was read.
