About the Author: Anthony Trollope

Anthony Trollope became one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of Trollope's best-loved works, known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire; he also wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts of his day.

Trollope has always been a popular novelist. Noted fans have included Sir Alec Guinness (who never travelled without a Trollope novel), former British Prime Ministers Harold Macmillan and Sir John Major, economist John Kenneth Galbraith, American novelists Sue Grafton and Dominick Dunne and soap opera writer Harding Lemay. Trollope's literary reputation dipped somewhat during the last years of his life, but he regained the esteem of critics by the mid-twentieth century.

The five stories in this volume contrast the old ways with the new; the traditional ideals of duty and responsibility with the youthful quest for love. The title story tells of the need to move with the times financially as Frau Frohmann reluctantly raises her prices to suit the increasing salaries of her hotel guests. 'The Lady of Launay' and 'The Telegraph Girl' compare two kinds of self-sacrifice. Lucy Graham is a telegraph girl whose sense of duty allows her to triumph over poverty but Mrs. Miles, the mistress of Launay, possesses a sour martyrdom that must be defeated. Doing the right thing, these stories tell us, is not always sufficient, it is doing them for the right reasons, like Alice Dugdale or Frau Frohmann, that matters.
