Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"An unstoppable read, a sexy and picaresque romp through the lesbian and queer demi-monde of the roaring Nineties (1890s). Imagine Jeanette Winterson on a good day, collaborating with Judith Butler to pen a sapphic "Moll Flanders". It's gorgeous." "Independent On Sunday".

Synopsis:

In the bawdy music halls of the late-19th century, Nan is captivated by Kitty Butler, a male impersonator. She manages to meet her heroine and soon after becomes her dresser. Heading for the bright lights of London they form a double act while privately, a love affair begins. A Virago "V".

Synopsis:

This stunning and steamy debut chronicles the adventures of Nan King, a small town girl at the turn of the century whose life takes a wild turn of its own when she follows a local music hall star to London...

Lucie, December 5, 2007 (view all comments by Lucie)
of all sarah waters' books, tipping the velvet is by far her strongest & most vivid.

the characters & setting are lush & scandalous, while the historical research & accuracy give it its depth & resonance.

tipping the velvet gives its reader a sense of victorian times, and the trials & tribulations a young lesbian could endure as the world changes all around her. it's lovely!

i loved tipping the velvet so much as a reader...that i drove cross-country on a whirlwind weekend trip to attend a film festival to see the book come to life. tipping the velvet is one of those books you never want to end.
