Faulks on Fiction, a new book by the novelist

Faulks on Fiction focuses 'on the protagonists of 28 different British novels split up into four different categories: heroes, lovers, snobs and villains'.

You may be dismayed to learn which hero has landed in the snob category.

Happily, characters can change. In Jane Austen's novel Emma, which Faulks thinks is close to perfection, Emma sheds her snobbish ways and becomes a wise and loving woman.
