    Middlesex af Jeffrey Eugenides (_debbie_)
    _debbie_: Both are (at least partially) historical novels with strong themes of identity, coming of age, and going against the mainstream to stay true to what you feel is right. Although one is set in Victorian England and the other isn't, they both have that same feel of rich language and descriptive place.… (mere)

Ah, se tutti gli esordi fossero così! Carezze di velluto è stata una lettura molto piacevole, con una protagonista che seguiamo nella crescita e nella sua scoperta di se stessa e di un mondo nel quale non è facile vivere per una ragazza da sola e lesbica.

Ci sono tante piccole cose che ho apprezzato di questa lettura. Per esempio, il rapporto di Nancy con la sua sessualità: impara nella maniera peggiore a stare attenta, ma non si pente mai dei suoi desideri, nemmeno quando questi vengono giudicati immorali per un verso o per un altro. Nel corso della sua crescita, non rinnegherà mai di essersi abbandonata alle gioie del sesso, né di averle sfruttate per tirare avanti.

Altro elemento interessante a proposito di quest’ultimo punto è il fatto che Nancy non sfrutta il sesso nel modo in cui siamo abituatu a leggere nei romanzi – ed è uno dei motivi per i quali la rappresentazione LGBTQIA+ porta ventate di aria fresca nelle storie, perché aggiunge varianti interessanti e punti di vista poco praticati.

Infine, mi è piaciuto tanto vedere la differenza tra il lesbismo nella nobiltà e nella classe operaia. Dalle storie raccontate, si ha l’impressione che la possibilità di vivere più liberamente la propria sessualità fosse un capriccio da persone ricche, ma non è proprio così. Pur nella realtà romanzata di Carezze di velluto, vediamo come la libertà sessuale fosse più autentica nelle classi più povere che in quelle più ricche, molto più soggette a ipocrisie e falsità.

In definitiva sono molto contenta di aver conosciuto quest’autrice e sicuramente leggerò altro di suo. ( )

This is Waters's first novel, and I found it by far the weakest, not surprisingly. This book is more like a lesbian variation on the sort of story Hollinghurst writes about gay men. It is a romance-oriented novel about a young woman, Nancy, who falls in love with a cross-dressing 'masher', a young woman entertainer who takes her along to London as an assistant. After a careful love affair, the entertainer, Kitty, marries a man and Nancy goes off on a binge in a seedy part of London dressed as a boy, and working the streets as a 'renter', a boy who gives hand-jobs to men for coin. After a while of this, and after a year spent as a kept woman, she lands herself in the home of an old acquaintance. They fall in love, and she at last has herself a safe, loving home to settle down in. It's a nice, happy ending, and a very Dickens-like adventure, an exploration of life in the underbelly of London for a gay woman. As such, this was a decent novel, and the sex scenes do not take over the book the way Hollinghurst's do, but on the whole I prefer Waters's later, better developed novels. ( )

The best descriptions of the tortures of love I've ever read. The plot got a bit loopy at times, but the prose was always a pleasure. ( )

I would recommend this book to anyone but I loathe 19th century settings. This book is amazing but honestly just not what I'm into. If you want cutesy lesbians who dress as boys and do sex work and are multifaceted and fall in love etc. it for you.

I wish I could give this book zero stars. I loathed it, which is disappointing because it’s been on my list for such a long time. The reviews are mostly praising, so why did I hate it? The author uses 300 words when ten would suffice. I was halfway through before I realized I was still waiting for it to start. Not one of the characters was the least bit likable. The subject matter appealed to me, but MY GAWD, the execution was terrible. I suspect its good reviews are similar to how “CATS” became the most popular musical ever: people were embarrassed at how much $$/time they spent on tickets/reading that they feel they HAVE to rave about it. I’ve seen the litter box that is “CATS,” and now I’ve read a book with a fascinating topic, told in the worst possible way. I have zero raves for either. ( )

"Dreams," I said. He snapped his fingers. "The very stuff that stages are made of."
"In short, Nance, even was you going to the very devil himself, your mother and I would rather see you fly from us in joy, than stay with us in sorrow - and grow, maybe, to hate us, for keeping you from your fate."
