Sarra Manning has penned a contemporary retelling of Vanity Fair with her latest novel, The Rise and Fall of Becky Sharp.
The synopsis says: "Becky Sharp has big dreams and no connections. Determined to swap the gutters of Soho for the glamorous, exclusive world behind the velvet rope, Becky will do anything to achieve fame, riches and status.
Whether it's seducing society's most eligible bachelors, or befriending silly debutantes and rich old ladies, Becky Sharp is destined for great things. Because it might be tough at the top but it's worse at the bottom.
From London to Paris and beyond, Becky Sharp is going places - so get the hell out of her way..." The Rise and Fall of Becky Sharp is out in September 2018.
