The Luck of Barry Lyndon is a picaresque novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, first published in serial form in 1844, about a member of the Irish gentry trying to become a member of the English aristocracy. Thackeray, who based the novel on the life and exploits of the Anglo-Irish rake and fortune-hunter Andrew Robinson Stoney, later reissued it under the title The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq. Stanley Kubrick later adapted the novel into the movie Barry Lyndon (1975). Unlike the film, the novel is narrated by Barry himself, who functions as a quintessentially unreliable narrator, perpetually boasting and not realizing the bad light in which he casts himself. --Wikipedia.com

The Christmas books of Mr. M.A. Titmarsh by William Makepeace Thackeray( Book )

162 editions published between 1800 and 2014 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Makepeace Thackeray is a nineteenth-century English novelist born in Calcutta, India. He studied art in London and Paris and worked as a journalist before moving to storytelling. He published many stories in newspapers prior to the release of his satirical masterpiece Vanity Fair in 1847. His volume entitled The Christmas Books of Mr M. A. Titmarsh is another major work of satire published by the mid-nineteenth century under his penname Titmarsh. It is a collection of five novellas entitled: "Mrs. Perkins's Ball, " "Our Street, " "Dr. Birch and his Young Friends, " "The Kickleburys on the Rhine" and "The Rose and the Ring; or, The History of Prince Giglio and Prince Bulbo. " In all of these narratives, Thackeray launches a harsh diatribe against the artificiality and the emptiness of the noble class. His criticism is apparently based on personal experience with noble families and friends. The endings of the stories which generally seem to be unconvincing show that what matters for Thackeray is rather the humoristic observations that he makes about prevailing social hypocrisy and falsehood

From this scene we rushed off somewhat discomposed to make a breakfast off red mullets and grapes, melons, pomegranates, and Smyrna wine, at a dirty little comfortable inn, to which we were recommended: and from the windows of which we had a fine cheerful view of the gulf and its busy craft, and the loungers and merchants along the shore. There were camels unloading at one wharf, and piles of melons much bigger than the Gibraltar cannon-balls at another
