The Mayor of Casterbridge is a man haunted by his past. In his youth he betrayed his wife and baby daughter in a shocking incident that led him to swear never to touch alcohol again for 21 years. He has since risen from his humble origins to become a respected pillar of the community in Casterbridge, but his secrets cannot stay hidden forever, and he has many hard lessons left to learn.

About the Author:

Thomas Hardy trained as an architect. In 1868 his work took him to St Juliot's church in Cornwall. His first novel, The Poor Man and the Lady, was rejected by publishers but Desperate Remedies was published and followed by Under the Greenwood Tree, A Pair of Blue Eyes, and Far from the Madding Crowd. He also wrote many other novels, poems and short stories. Tess of the D'Urbervilles was published in 1891. His final novel was Jude the Obscure. Hardy was awarded the Order of Merit in 1920 and the gold medal of the Royal Society of Literature in 1912. Thomas Hardy died January 11, 1928.

Review:

"I could have picked any Hardy but this is wonderful. He is so good at portraying the highs and lows of human emotions and endeavours and setting them against the vast background of time and space that puts the smallness of the human condition into perspective."
--Jane Asher, Daily Express
