Upon its publication in 1832, Domestic Manners of the Ameri-cans instantly caused a storm of controversy. A sometimes scathing, often witty, beautifully written account of the foibles and failings of America as Fanny Trollope saw it, Domestic Manners was, however, roundly applauded across Europe. Banned in the U.S. for almost 100 years, it has since become a well loved as a piece of literary history on those shores, even amongst the countrymen, the children and grandchildren of those it once gently taunted.
