Named one of the best books of 2017 by Time, People, Amazon.com, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, & Vogue Tina Brown kept delicious daily diaries throughout her eight spectacular years as editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair. Today they provide an incendiary portrait of the flash and dash and power brokering of the Excessive Eighties in New York and Hollywood. The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her twenties who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Condé Nast's troubled new flagship Vanity Fair, Tina Brown is immediately plunged into the maelstrom of the competitive New York media world and the backstabbing rivalries at the court of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her by a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine. Here are the inside stories of Vanity Fair scoops and covers that sold millions—the Reagan kiss, the meltdown of Princess Diana's marriage to Prince Charles, the sensational Annie Leibovitz cover of a gloriously pregnant, naked Demi Moore. In the diary's cinematic pages, the drama, the comedy, and the struggle of running an "it" magazine come to life. Brown's Vanity Fair Diaries is also a woman's journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter. Astute, open-hearted, often riotously funny, Tina Brown's The Vanity Fair Diaries is a compulsively fascinating and intimate chronicle of a woman's life in a glittering era.

At Vanity Fair tells the story of Bunyan's powerful metaphor, exploring how Vanity Fair was transformed from an emblem of sin and persecution into a showcase for celebrity, wealth and power. This literary history, focusing on reception, adaptation and influence, traces the fictional representation of Vanity Fair over three centuries from John Bunyan's masterpiece, The Pilgrim's Progress (1678), to William Makepeace Thackeray's own Vanity Fair (1847–8). It explores the influence of anonymous journalists and booksellers alongside well-known authors including Ben Jonson, Samuel Richardson and Thomas Carlyle. Over time, Bunyan's dystopian fantasy has been altered and repurposed to characterise consumer capitalism, channelling memories that inform and unsettle modern hedonism. By tracking the idea of 'Vanity Fair' against this shifting background, the book illuminates the relationship between the individual and the collective imagination, between what is culturally available and what is creatively impelled.

Jahrmarkt der Eitelkeit (Vanity Fair, or, a Novel without a Hero) ist ein wichtiges Werk des englischen Schriftstellers William Makepeace Thackeray. Der Gesellschaftsroman bietet ein facettenreiches, alle sozialen Klassen einschließendes Bild der Londoner Gesellschaft zu Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts und zeichnet sich durch seinen ironischen Stil und seine präzise Darstellung der handelnden Figuren und ihrer Charaktere aus. Die Geschichte beginnt in Miss Pinkertons "Erziehungsanstalt für junge Damen," wo Becky Sharp und Amelia Sedley soeben ihr Studium abgeschlossen haben und sich auf ihre Abreise in Amelias Haus am Russell Square vorbereiten. Becky wird als willensstarke und gewandte junge Frau beschrieben, die entschlossen ist, sich in der Gesellschaft zu behaupten und ihren Weg zu gehen, Amelia hingegen als gutmütiges, liebenswertes, aber einfältiges junges Mädchen. Am Russell Square wird Becky Sharp dem schneidigen, egozentrischen Captain George Osborne vorgestellt (mit dem Amelia von frühester Jugend an verlobt ist), sowie auch Amelias Bruder, Joseph "Joe" Sedley, einem tollpatschigen und prahlerischen, aber reichen Angehörigen der Britischen Ostindien-Kompanie, der gerade ins Vereinigte Königreich zurückgekehrt ist. William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863) war ein englischer Schriftsteller und gilt neben Charles Dickens und George Eliot als bedeutendster englischsprachiger Romancier des Viktorianischen Zeitalters.
