Episode 14 – Season Three Intro

Episode 13 – The Trollope Who Stole Christmas

E Hi Listeners! Welcome to Episode 13 – The Trollope Who Stole Christmas! If you’ve ever heard of a novelist by the name of Trollope before listening to this season, chances are it was Anthony. The middle child of Frances Milton and Thomas Anthony Trollope, Anthony managed to lay claim to the family name and legacy, despite the fact that nearly everyone in his family published fiction or non-fiction, in part because he–with help from his brother Thomas Adolphus–torpedoed his mother’s authorial reputation and legacy in order to make his own work seem more prestigious (as we discussed in the first episode of the season: Episode 7 – Frances Milton Trollope). If that doesn’t earn him a title as the family grinch, I don’t know what does. So this episode, continuing in the pattern we established with our very first Winter Holiday episode last year, we present you a mini-bio of a fairly well known Victorian Scribbler and share some of his holiday-related work. But we don’t have to...
