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.

The luck of Barry Lyndon by William Makepeace Thackeray( )

47 editions published between 1844 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Some roundabout papers by William Makepeace Thackeray( )

16 editions published between 1908 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. He was famous for his satirical works, particularly Vanity Fair (1847), a panoramic portrait of English society. Thackeray began as a satirist and parodist, with a sneaking fondness for roguish upstarts like Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair, Barry Lyndon in Barry Lyndon (1844) and Catherine in Catherine (1839). 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

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

165 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in English and held by 1,856 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
