About the Author:
Anthony Trollope (1815- 1882) was one of the great Victorian novelists, penning 47 novels in his day. He also rose to the top of his profession as a senior civil servant in the Post Office, and was one of the most widely travelled men of his day. His Post Office work and personal travel took him across Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Egypt and South Africa. He visited the West Indies, the United States, Australia and New Zealand; and everywhere he went, he wrote. Trollope wrote for three hours every morning from 5am - 8am, and then went to work. He paid a servant £5 extra a year to wake him up with a cup of coffee. Rather than leave his son a sum of money in his will, Trollope left him his autobiography and two novels ready for sale and publication. Trollope created hundreds of characters to populate his novels, but curiosly, only one whose surname begins with the letter I: Jefferson Ingram.
