Way We Live Now



Автор: Anthony Trollope


Короткое описание книги

The Way We Live Now is the story of foreign-born financier Augustus Melmotte, a man with a mysterious past who sets the rumour mill on fire upon his arrival in London with his family.

Using nothing but his charm, Melmotte convinces several associates to invest in his company.

But Melmottes ascent up the social ladder is blocked by Paul Montague, a young engineer who questions his intentions.

A literary classic, The Way We Live Now was inspired by the English financial scandals of the 1870s, and is a stunning, satirical look at an era dominated by greed and dishonesty.

The Way We Live Now has twice been adapted for television.
