Miss Mackenzie by Anthony Trollope
  

Good Housekeeping's view...

February 2012 Guest Editor Joanna Trollope on Anthony Trollope...

The real Trollope. Of all the Victorians, Anthony Trollope is the most profoundly psychological of novelists – and he was writing long before Freud!. His women are particularly good, especially when you think that marriage was the only career option for millions of them. If you haven’t been able to face one of his novels – they can be a bit enormous – try “Miss Mackenzie”, the story of an old maid (at 34!) who inherits some money…

March 2010 Good Housekeeping selection.

On My Bookshelf by Joanna Trollope...

No writer of his time was better at people than, as my family refer to him, The Real Trollope – Anthony of the small specs and the huge beard. Miss Mackenzie is an affectionate and accurate portrait of the eternal female psyche – a small gem.

About the Author

Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope (24 April 1815 – 6 December 1882) became one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of Trollope's best-loved works, known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire; he also wrote penetrating novels on political, social, gender issues, and conflicts of his day. Trollope has always been a popular novelist. Noted fans have included Sir Alec Guinness (who never travelled without a Trollope novel), former British Prime Ministers Harold Macmillan and Sir John Major, economist John Kenneth Galbraith, American novelists Sue Grafton and Dominick Dunne and soap opera writer Harding Lemay. Trollope's literary reputation dipped somewhat during the last years of his life, but he regained the esteem of critics by the mid-twentieth century.
