Tipping the Velvet
- By: Sarah Waters
- Narrated by: Juanita McMahon
- Length: 19 hrs and 4 mins
'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'.

All time favourite!
I could read or listen to this book over and over and never tire, every time it's new to me.
