In response to Trollope/JA comparison, written by Janette K on July 25, 1998 at 23:32:57
] ] Trollope wrote a massive amount of stuff, all of it very worthwhile, most of which I haven't read except for the Barchester books and a couple of others, but I wholeheartedly recommend these particular books to Jane people.
I'll agree with you in eveything!
("Miss Mackenzie" is an exception)
Another is Miss Dunhill or Dunwich (the name has just slipped me). But if you have read the Barchester books, you already know about her. I think it's a delightful character. Is the Palliser series as good?
] Just as a note of interest, AT was a mailman, later an office worker for the post office. He thought up the plots of his early novel while walking his mail route. He would get up every morning at about 5:00, I believe, and write with his watch in front of him, with the goal of writing 250 words before breakfast.
He also was the one to invent the letter-box, or so I've read.
