Meet the Author

Pan Zador lives in Wales and Ireland, and Hardy’s Wessex countryside is well known to her from childhood holidays. Her first love is theatre - her second love is romance with a capital R!

Thomas Hardy [1839-1928], English poet and novelist, ran into difficulties with the stern Victorian morality of his editor when this book was first published in 1874 in serial form in an English newspaper. He was forced to censor his more daring romantic material; now, his new co-author hopes, the balance has been redressed.

    Wow, I loved this book. I had never read Far from the Maddin

    Wow, I loved this book. I had never read <i>Far from the Madding Crowd</i>
    before this &quot;wild and wanton&quot; edition, and, despite the fact that I have a Masters degree in literature, I did not expect to enjoy the classic as much as I did. It is a sad fact that many classics do not stand up to the same enjoyment amongst today's fast-paced reads that they experienced in eras past (I mean, really, Nathaniel Hawthorne? 5 pages to describe a butterfly?). <i>Far from the Madding Crowd</i>
    is, at its base, a pastoral romance (romance in its literary meaning, not ooh-la-la romance), which naturally lends itself to heightened emotion and erotic love. Pan Zador recognized this and pulled the romance (the ooh-la-la kind) from the subtext of the book with masterful artist strokes. Her voice is true to Hardy's work and weaves itself seamlessly amongst the trials of Bathsheba and her three fellows to create a truly compelling read. Lovers of the original <i> Far from the Madding Crowd</i>
    will find new things to love in this edition, and the untried reader will find a new favorite. There is much to recommend in Zador's &quot;wild and wanton&quot; edition!
