    Inhaltsangabe

    'Piercing the shadows of the naked stage was a single shaft of rosy limelight, and in the centre of this was a girl: the most marvellous girl - I knew it at once! - that I had ever seen.'

    A saucy, sensuous and multi-layered historical romance, Tipping the Velvet follows the glittering career of Nan King - oyster girl turned music-hall star turned rent boy turned East End 'tom'.

    ©1998 Sarah Waters (P)1998 W F Howes Ltd

    Kritikerstimmen

    "An unstoppable read, a sexy and picaresque romp through the lesbian and queer demi-monde of the roaring Nineties. Imagine Jeanette Winterson on a good day collaborating with Judith Butler to pen a Sapphic Moll Flanders. It's gorgeous" ( Independent on Sunday)
    "She is an extremely confident writer, combining precise, sensuous descriptions with irony and wit. This is a lively, gutsy, highly readable debut" ( Observer)

    Overall nice read, bit cheesy sometimes

    If you're gay and you like period novels, you will like this. Refreshing to read, if a bit purple prosey, but I guess that's in the title so it doesn't come as much of a surprise. It doesn't lessen the fun, either, so definitely give this a try!
