I just finished a marathon reading of Sarah Waters’ Fingersmith, the third novel of hers, which is set in Victorian England. This is really one of those can’t-put-it-down-til-you’ve-finished books, with a lesbian love affair wrapped up in Dickensian settings, typical of her other novels. Now I want to go back and reread the other two, particularly Affinity, as that is my favorite of the three. True to form, Fingersmith was very atmospheric, with so many twists and turns – a truly satisfying read. Her newest novel comes out in the spring, and although it’s a departure from the typical setting (taking place in WWII London), I can’t wait to read it.
