Tipping the Velvet – Sarah Waters

tipping the velvetWhat can be said of this back that hasn’t already been written or spoken of before? It is so firmly established in the country Zeitgeist that I can only say how much I enjoyed it and how great it was to have such an eloquent timeless novel written primarily for and about lesbians.

Prior to this, books were always on some hidden shelf in the book shops, if indeed there were any at all. All of a sudden this novel takes everyone by storm.

The television adaptation is the talk of the nation and is very well done by the chap that usually gives us Jane Austin. Well done Sarah for breaking all the boundaries.

If you haven’t read it… what on earth have you been doing with your time? Go and get a copy now!
