Summary:

Nan King, an oyster girl, is captivated by the music hall phenomenon Kitty Butler, a male impersonator extraordinaire treading the boards in Canterbury. Through a friend at the box office, Nan manages to visit all her shows and finally meet her heroine. Soon after, she becomes Kitty's dresser and the two head for the bright lights of Leicester Square where they begin a glittering career as music-hall stars in an all-singing and dancing double act. At the same time, behind closed doors, they admit their attraction to each other and their affair begins.

    This book was an unexpected gem of queer historical fiction. It got FAR SAUCIER than I had anticipated and I will say, the flyleaf synopsis only really covers the first quarter of the book, if that. But it lead to quite the sapphic adventure and I will not spoil the journey with too many details here beyond highlighting how very many marginalized communities were included in the truly diverse bunch of characters and how very flawed and human Nan appears throughout. The narrator, accent and all, was perfect. And on a more personal note: as something of a “Tom” myself, I felt wonderfully seen and it was lovely to find a story of events so familiar to me set in one of my favorite eras.
