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.

'Erotic and absorbing . . . Written with startling power' New York Times Book Review

Nan King, an oyster girl, is captivated by the music hall phenomenon Kitty Butler, a male impersonator extraordinaire treading the boards in Canterbury. Through a friend at the box office, Nan manages to visit all her shows and finally meet her heroine. Soon after, she becomes Kitty's dresser and the two head for the bright lights of Leicester Square where they begin a glittering career as music-hall stars in an all-singing and dancing double act. At the same time, behind closed doors, they admit their attraction to each other and their affair begins.

Pure Brilliance

I have to say I'm not much of a reader but I was absolutely glued to this book! I've read it a couple of times and still can't get enough! Pure brilliance!

This game is a waste of time ,

Wonderful

An unputdownable book. Puts the TV series to shame. The detail and facts that it includes let's you almost be in 1890 London.
