William Makepeace Thackeray was an English novelist known for his satirical works. Vanity Fair, which was one of his most popular novels, was the first novel published under his name. He published Vanity Fair in serial monthly parts, a method used by Charles Dickens. Other notable works include With the Luck of Barry Lyndon and Pendennis. He also wrote travel books such as The Paris Sketch Book and From Cornhill to Grand Cairo.
On writing, he said:
The two most engaging powers of an author
are to make new things familiar,
familiar things new.
I quite agree. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
