Description

"Vintage Lust" is a limited edition gift pack which consists of beautifully designed separate volumes of "Tom Jones" by Henry Fielding and Martin Amis's critically acclaimed "The Rachel Papers". "Vintage Lust" is just one of ten "Vintage Classic Twins" to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination. "Tom Jones": One of the cleverest and funniest novels ever written, and is Henry Fielding's greatest achievement. "Tom Jones", born a foundling, grown into a gallant and irresistible hero, romps through the English countryside getting himself into all kinds of trouble through his good nature and eye for the ladies. Betrayed by jealous relatives, Tom is exiled from home and must undergo a variety of trials and adventures in his quest to be reunited with his one true love. The "The Rachel Papers": Charles Highway, a precociously intelligent and highly sexed teenager, is determined to sleep with an older woman before he turns twenty. Rachel fits the bill perfectly and Charles plans his seduction meticulously, sets the scene with infinite care - but it doesn't come off quite as Charles expects...

Author Biography

Henry Fielding was born near Glastonbury on 22 April 1707. He is regarded as a key figure in the development of the English novel. His most famous works are Joseph Andrews (1742), Tom Jones (1749) and Amelia (1751).Many elements in Tom Jones are based on Fielding's own experiences and the character of Sophia is based on his first wife, Charlotte. The Female Husband is a pamphlet that Fielding published anonymously in 1746. The story is based on the true case of a woman who was prosecuted for masquerading as a man and marrying another woman. Although he continued to write until his death, Fielding also worked as a magistrate from 1749 and was instrumental in paving the way for the foundation of London's Metropolitan Police Service. Henry Fielding died near Lisbon on 8 October 1754. Martin Amis is the author of ten novels, two collections of stories and six collections of non-fiction. His most recent book is House of Meetings (2006).
