This vintage book contains William Makepeace Thackeray 1844 picaresque novel, "The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esquire". It is the story of Barry Lydon, a member of the Irish Gentry who attempts to transition to English Aristocracy. The beginning of his life is fraught with duels and wars, and he eventually makes his fortune as a gambler. The character of Barry Lyndon was based on the life and exploits of the Anglo-Irish fortune-hunter Andrew Robinson Stoney. A fantastically clever and often humourous tale, "The Memoirs of Barry Lyndon, Esq." constitutes a worthy addition to any bookshelf, and is a veritable must-read for fans of Thackeray’s masterful work. William Makepeace Thackeray (1811 - 1863) was an esteemed English novelist during the nineteenth century. He became famous for his satirical novels, the most important and influential of which was "Vanity Fair". Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
