The Confessions of Becky Sharp is at once a prequel, an alternative version and a sequel to Thackeray's Vanity Fair. It is further unlike the original in being told from Becky's point of view, a counterblast to what Becky terms 'that tray of butcher's pieces known as Vanity Fair.
TCBS has been highly commended by 3 literary consultants:
'An extremely well-written pastiche, true to the form, structure and syntax of Thackeray's writing,' Jocelyn Ferguson, The Literary Consultancy.
'A most impressive performance, a well-nigh perfectly pitched and inflected stylistic pastiche. Pick any paragraph at random and one finds an effortless shapeliness of syntactical form and internal rhythm, elegantly ironic.' - Robert Lambolle, Reading and Writing.
'This is a terrific read in which you have created - revisioned - Becky Sharp as a truly memorable, psychologically credible character, even more rounded than Thackeray's and peculiarly endearing.' - Linda Proud, The Writers' Workshop.
