Ambitious social climber Becky Sharp is determined to gain wealth and worldly success - whatever the cost. Witty, charming and ruthless, orphaned as a child and 'a woman since she was eight years old', she is well-equipped for the fight. And while her sentimental companion Amelia falls victim to the caddish soldier George Osborne, brilliant conniving, gold-digging Becky is busy clawing her way to the top...
'An utterly contemporary novel... for any young woman brought up to believe that it's not very nice to be pushy, Vanity Fair comes as a refreshing antidote.'
