‘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.’
For our next Virago Book Club selection we have picked a book that we have wanted to discuss since the book club started nearly two years ago, and an author we know many of you have been keen for us to talk about too! Yes, it is the one and only Sarah Waters, and her classic debut novel, Tipping The Velvet.
Recently reissued by Virago as part of our Coming of Age series in August, now seems the perfect time to revisit one of the most popular books on the Virago list, and discuss some of the themes within.
We’ll be discussing this extraordinary book from 22nd October onwards, and we’d love to know what you think.
