The Mayor of Casterbridge
Available in Stock
While drunk at a fair, hay-trusser Michael Henchard sold his wife and child to a sailor for five guineas. The next morning he vowed to mend his ways; and eventually, by hard work and good judgement, he became mayor of Casterbridge. Then, 18 years after being sold, his wife returns and Henchard finds he cannot escape his past. Collector’s Library.
