Born in Calcutta in 1811, William Makepeace Thackeray's earliest works were sharp satirical barbs written under a variety of pen names. After struggling through a rocky start as an author, Thackeray would go on to write several well-loved novels, including Vanity Fair, The Luck of Barry Lyndon, and Catherine. In Men's Wives, Thackeray turns his keen perception and cutting wit to the subject of romantic -- and not-so-romantic -- relationships.

Many of the most beloved tales from this series are collected in this volume.

A Novel without a Hero is a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray, first published in 184748, satirizing society in early 19th-century Britain. The book's title comes from John Bunyan's allegorical story The Pilgrim's Progress, first published in 1678 and still widely read at the time of Thackeray's novel. Vanity fair refers to a stop along the pilgrim's progress: a never-ending fair held in a town called Vanity, which is meant to represent man's sinful attachment to worldly things. The novel is now considered a classic, and has inspired several film adaptations.

At least I-ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!
