The way we live now by Anthony Trollope( Book )
1 edition published in 1875 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Considered by contemporary critics to be Trollope's greatest novel, The Way We Live Now is a satire of the literary world of nineteenth-century London and a bold indictment of the new power of speculative finance in English life. The story concerns Augustus Melmotte, a French swindler and scoundrel, and his daughter, to whom Felix Carbury, adored son of the authoress Lady Carbury, is induced to propose marriage for the sake of securing a fortune. Trollope's portrait of Lady Carbury, impetuous, unprincipled, and unswervingly devoted to her own self-promotion, is one of his finest satirical achievements. In his kaleidoscopic depiction of a society on the verge of moral bankruptcy, Trollope gives us life as it was lived more than a hundred years ago, while speaking eloquently to some of the governing obsessions of our own age

Edwin Drood and Rosa Budd are engaged to be married, as their parents have desired. But unbeknownst to Drood, his youthful uncle, Jasper, is deeply in love with Rosa -- so much so, in fact, that his despair has turned him into a secret opium addict. Neville Landless is also in love with Rosa, and Jasper helps feed his jealousy of Drood. Then one day Drood vanishes. Because of Jasper's assertions, Landless is held and questioned for Drood's murder but no body is found. Meanwhile, Landless' sister Helena also disappears and not long after a stranger named Datchery shows up and begins asking questions about Drood's disappearance.
