 The Way We Live Now is Anthony Trollope's longest novel. It was first published in 1875, after having previously appeared in serialised form.

The novel is a satire set in London. It was inspired by various financial scandals of the 1870s, and was intended to expose the greed and dishonesty which was prevalent in certain circles during that period of English history.
