Sunday Sentence: Anthony Trollope by Victoria Glendinning

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

The English residents of Pau were wary of (Anthony Trollope’s authoress mother) for fear she would put them in her next novel. When challenged on this, she replied: “Of course I draw from life—but I always pulp my acquaintance before serving them up. You would never recognize a pig in a sausage.”

  1. Trollope was a late bloomer and this book is full of rewards for people who always wanted to write but haven't yet started.
