So, as I gushed yesterday, I met Sarah Waters! And I can report:

1:She is cute, and quite small.

2: She has really nice runners (that's trainers or sneakers to you non-micks)

3: Her girlfriend is obsessed with Jane Austen.

4: She has mixed feelings about the TV adaptation of Tipping the Velvet (she said a few critical things about it, especially the portrayal of Florence and the grotesque portrayal of the older lesbian characters but then quickly said that it was very good).

5: She drinks camomile tea.

6: She is a great person with whom to talk about 19th century fiction, especially Dickens and Wilkie Collins.

7: Her new book, which will be set in the '40s, won't be finished for a while, and she's reading loads of '40s books to get the right tone in her head.

I finished Affinity last week at three in the morning - you are right, it rocks! But I am seized with fear - I just got up to the bit in Tipping the Velvet where the pervy lesbian goings-on at the Cavendish Club are described. That's where my dad stays whenever he's in London! He says the old ladies there are always so nice to him! Heavens above!
