9780091837167: Vanity Fierce

With this title the author no doubt sees this book as an update on "Vanity Fair", updating it into the Sydney gay scene. The title is appropriate as the main character, Stephen Spear is every bit as cunning, self-centred and manipulative as Thackeray's Becky Sharp. It is the central character that makes this book such a delight to read. Stephen's determination to get his man will have you laughing out loud one minute, then cringing at his behaviour and even feeling sorry for him. All range of human emotions and failings are here. Great fun and behind the fluff and trivia of the Australian gay lives depicted here lies a book of serious and thought-provoking issues.
