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.
