Penguin Classics presents Thomas Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge, adapted for audio and available as a digital download as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by the actor Nigel Anthony.

"Here - I am waiting to know about this offer of mine. The woman is no good to me. Who'll have her?"

In a fit of drunken anger, Michael Henchard sells his wife and baby daughter for five guineas at a country fair. Over the course of the following years, he manages to establish himself as a respected and prosperous pillar of the community of Casterbridge, but behind his success there always lurk the shameful secret of his past and a personality prone to self-destructive pride and temper.

Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.
