Tipping the Velvet

Tipping the Velvet paperback cover.Barbara Davies, bard extraordinaire, recommended a bunch of authors she likes on her mailing list and Sarah Waters' name was among them. I researched each author on-line to see if I might like to read their books and discovered that Sarah Waters had written a book that was on my 'to read' list for the future, Tipping the Velvet. It's set in Victorian London and follows the adventures of Nancy Astley, a young woman from the English port town of Whitsable. I placed a reserve for a copy through the Metropolitan Library System since it was already checked out.

Mike and I then went to Borders to pick up the newest Little Lit book (It Was a Dark and Silly Night). I wandered over to the Lesbian fiction section because I wanted to see if they had anything new and what should I see but three (3!) copies of Tipping the Velvet. Well, by golly, I decided I should reward Borders for stocking the title so I bought it. They even had a novel by Michelle Tea (woo!) and I bought that too. Maybe my Borders Sleuth searches are having an impact on their ordering.... Anyway, back to Tipping the Velvet. I really hate it when someone tells you about a book and gives too much of the plot away so I'll just let you know that book is engrossing and funny and sad and uplifting and sexy and aw, just buy it. You won't be sorry. I'm gonna get the rest of Sarah Waters' books soon.
