Tipping the Velvet

by Sarah Waters - £8.99  Virago (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781860495243 | ISBN 10: 1860495249

A saucy, sensuous and muli-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'.
 
Tipping the Velvet launched the career of one of Britain's most exciting and successful writers. Sarah Waters has written five subsequent bestselling novels, all of which have been filmed or are currently in production and she has received critical and popular acclaim and prize shortlists. She was awarded the Stonewall Writer of the Decade in 2016.
 
Tipping the Velvet was adapted by Andrew Davies and filmed by Sally Head Productions for the BBC.
