Short biography
Frances Milton Trollope was a prolific English novelist and writer who often used her works as social commentary. In 1809, at age 30, she married Thomas A. Trollope, a lawyer with whom she had seven children. In 1827, she traveled to the USA and stayed at the experimental utopian community, Nashoba Commune, near Memphis, Tennessee. After her return to England, she began writing to help support her family. Her first book, Domestic Manners of the Americans (1832), was a bestseller and caused a sensation both in the UK and the USA for its unflattering view of American society. During her career, she published some 100 volumes. In the late 1830s, she moved to Florence, Italy, where she lived until her death.
