This early work by Anthony Trollope was originally published in 1847 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. ‘The Macdermots of Ballycloran’ is Trollope’s first novel. It follows senile Larry Macdermot, Thady - his well-meaning but ignorant son, and a daughter, Feemy. "The Macdermots is almost in the first flight of Trollope...

The characters are all revealed by natural and lively dialogue, and every character has his work to do in the development of the central theme." – Walpole
