Publisher Description

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'.

Evocative

Although I thought the story dragged a little in places it was, nonetheless, well worth reading. The images brought to life by the reader were amazing. It was as if, by turns, you could smell the greasepaint, feel the fever of the crowds, sink into the tawdriness of life on the streets, sink into the opulence of Diana's home & be thoroughly immersed in the squalor of the East End. Well worth the read.

Tipping the velvet

What an amazing book! What twists! What turns! A must read for all lesbians, and those that want a story of a different kind of love.
An excellent tale of the things that get in the way of love. A beautiful, sometimes somber, fiction of what lesbian love looked like in the very early days.
