Sarah Waters' hugely inventive novels usually have lesbian relationships at their heart, and are always set in the past, when remaining true to oneself came at great personal risk. Her latest book, The Paying Guests, is no exception. It chronicles the awakening of a passion in 1920s London that leads to terrible consequences, and asks: how far would we go for a love that is forbidden by society but nonetheless achingly real?

Sarah Waters is the award-winning, bestselling author of five previous novels including Fingersmith and The Little Stranger.
