Way We Live Now, Paperback / softback Book


The "now" of this novel is 1870s London, and the "we" comprises a motley cast of financiers, investors, and determined social-climbers.

Inspired by contemporary financial scandals, Anthony Trollope's social comedy offers a savagely satirical view of mid-Victorian England.

The great storyteller's masterpiece, which centers on a Ponzi scheme involving the building of an American railroad, continues to resonate in the 21st century.
