Fingersmith: Waterstones Reading the 21st Century

Autor Sarah Waters
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 26 iun 2012
From the celebrated author of Tipping the Velvet and Affinity comes an extraordinary, ingenious tale of fraud, insanity and secrets.

London 1862. Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves - fingersmiths - under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her 'family'. But from the moment she draws breath, Sue's fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.

'Sarah Waters is one of the best storytellers alive today . . .'
Matt Thorne, Independent on Sunday

'Intensely atmospheric, impeccably paced, and cunningly structured, this is that rarity in contemporary fiction: a deeply serious novel that is also a thumping great read'
Douglas Kennedy, Mail on Sunday

'There are always novels that you envy people for not yet having read, for the pleasure they still have to come. Well, this is one. Long, dark, twisted and satisfying, it's a fabulous piece of writing . . . an unforgettable experience'
Julie Myerson, Guardian

Winner of The CWA Ellis Peters Dagger for Historical Crime Fiction
