    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'.

Oh My God!!!!

by screwdskull on Mar 7, 2008

This is such a well crafted tale that when I finished reading it I had to read it again the second I had finished. The main character is so likeable in her naivete and as she starts to learn about real life so does the reader, it all becomes a discovery of life. It is the pure imagination of the story and how uncommon it is that makes this book stand out and this writer one to watch.
