Good For Her

Sarah Waters named one of the Best of Young British Novelists 2003, an award announced only once every decade.

I really enjoyed Tipping the Velvet and would love to see the BBC production of it. I would buy the DVD but it only seems to be available from UK sites (Amazon, BlackStar, etc.) and is encoded for region 2. My DVD player only plays region 1 encoded discs. I’m told the DVD player in my computer might play region 2 discs, if I download and install software that switches the abilities of my DVD player. But, it’s unclear if I can then switch the DVD player back afterwards. Harummpphh.


  1. I loved ‘Tipping the Velvet’ and can see why Waters was nominated, but her book ‘Affinity’ was truly awful. <br>I’d love to see TTV in a play or movie form.

  2. and to finish that thought…if u wanna try some region 1 DVDs before u screw up your PC….lemme know…..

  3. Not sure about PCs but on a Mac you can switch regions 5 times, but that’s it. <br><br>FYI: I posted those letters tonight if you are still interested πŸ™‚ Cheers
