An ambitious beauty who bends men to her will. A naïve daughter of a wealthy merchant. A man who is loyal to his friends when they don’t deserve his affection.
Introducing just some of the characters in Vanity Fair, the 8th novel in Marilyn Lightstone’s popular podcast Marilyn Lightstone Reads.
Immerse yourself in William Thackeray’s deliciously satirical take on a money-mad society set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. From the self-important heirs, to the indulgent playboys and of course, the seductive social-climber Becky Sharp, only Marilyn captures them all.
