Virago Press have just revealed the cover for Sarah Waters upcoming novel "The Paying Guests"



I love it! It's really different to her previous covers. I'm really exited to read this now! Here's the blurb:

The book will be set in a “tense” London in 1922, in the wake of the First World War, with disillusioned ex-servicemen, and the out-of-work and hungry demanding change.

In a genteel Camberwell villa, bereft of men, impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter Frances have to take in lodgers. When Lilian and Leonard Barber—a modern young couple of the “clerk class”—arrive, the routines of the house are shaken up in unexpected ways. “Passions mount and frustration gathers,” Virago promised.

Goodings said: “It is vintage Sarah Waters in every way—beautifully described with excruciating tension, real tenderness, believable characters, and surprises; it is above all, a wonderful, compelling story.”
 
Fingersmith is up there as one of my all time favourite novels. Roll on September!
