FWIW, I read Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans. It's still an entertaining read, and time has taken most of the sting out of her criticisms of us. Cincinnati isn't nearly so dreadful as it was when she was there. At any rate, the pigs are gone.
I'm up for The Way We Live Now.
He calls it a 'deliberate take on Shakespeare's 'Othello', 'far from Trollope's usual genial wordliness.' I have managed to obtain a copy and I hope that I agree with him as it is a very long novel in the true 19th Century fashion. I will however tackle it in tribute to this still underrated writer.
