Narrated by an actor with an aristocratic pedigree, SNOBS is a delicious social satire set in 1990s England, in which a beautiful middle-class young woman claws her way into British society by marrying a dim-witted earl. Though its setting is modern, the wry sensibility and gimlet-eyed deconstruction of social morays put SNOBS firmly in the tradition of Jane Austen, E.F. Benson (especially the "Lucia" series) and Anthony Trollope. Julian Fellowes talks with Bookreporter.com's Bella Stander about mental toughness, second chances and the tribulations of the acting life.
