Trollope Trending

Reading a very good article about the modern relevance of Anthony Trollope: 

Trollope Trending: Why He's Still the Novelist of the Way We Live Now
The New Yorker (4 May 2015) pp 28-32

One of several notable quotes: 

Trollope sees that the agents of reform are often ugly, that the beneficiaries of corruption are often graceful, that the effects of reform are often dubious, but that reform in a liberal society is nonetheless as inevitable as the standardization of measurement.
