I got very excited when I read the full piece because I wasn't reading it properly and my eye had landed on Trollope's Small House at Allington, which I have actually read, only to find it was not on the list at all. Ho hum. I have read The Snow Goose though.

I have to confess that I haven't read any of them though I have sold The Snowgoose often.
