Vanity Fair a novel without a hero by William Makepeace Thackeray ( Book )
772 editions published between 1800 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 11,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vanity Fair is a story of two heroines---one humble, the other a scheming social climber---who meet in boarding school and embark on markedly different lives. Amid the swirl of London's posh ballrooms and affairs of love and war, their fortunes rise and fall. Through it all, Thackeray lampoons the shallow values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper crust. What results is a prescient look at the dogged pursuit of wealth and status---and the need for humility

The Newcomes memoirs of a most respectable family by William Makepeace Thackeray ( Book )
461 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this sweeping novel that spans decades, Thackeray tells of the virtuous and upstanding Colonel Thomas Newcome and of his son Clive.

Set in the mid 1800s, the novel explores the theme of life repeating itself from one generation to the next--for example, the tendency to sacrifice love in favor of marrying for financial security or for social position. A masterful portrayal of life and satire of snobbery in the early Victorian age

In his earliest works, writing under such pseudonyms as Charles James Yellowplush, Michael Angelo Titmarsh and George Savage Fitz-Boodle, he tended towards the savage in his attacks on high society, military
The Newcomes by William Makepeace Thackeray ( Book )
186 editions published between 1850 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Newcomes is Thackeray's most essentially 'Victorian' novel, generous in its proportions, sharp in its criticism of the moral convolutions of the age, and encyclopaedic in its reference. Set in the 1830s and 1840s, a period of rapid change and of political and economic development, the novel considers the fortunes and misfortunes of a 'most respectable' extended middle-class family.
