Sarah Waters’ debut book, Tipping the Velvet is set during the 1890s and follows the story of Nan, who falls in love with a male impersonator. A vivid portrait of Victorian London and a beautiful example of queer literature. - Amy

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'.
