I have heard it on the grape vine that some of Sarah Waters' Lesbian fans have stated that they will not read her next book as it does not involve Lesbians.
Hang on just a minute here.... Sarah Waters is an amazing author and more power to her!
Don't you find it refreshing? That somebody who knows she is sucessful in her current ideas and themes, is stepping outside the square into the unknown territory of the oblong?
We should be celebrating the fact that a prominant Lesbian author is going to be publishing a novel aimed at the big scary world of heterosexuals!
As for me, i have just finished reading 'The Night Watch' and i cannot wait to get my hands on the next Sarah Waters novel.
