Brilliant!! I read the book in two days, finishing it at three in the morning because I just couldn't stop reading. "Slipper" is, first and foremost, a gripping historical drama with a delightful, and delightfully flawed, protagonist. It contains love, lust, compassion, cruelty, decency, treachery, idealism, and cynicism. The cast includes aristocrats, servants, soldiers, doctors, artists and prostitutes. Yet the story is told with wonderful delicacy. Interwoven into the narrative are elements of the Cinderella story. This is done subtly, but provides a thread which becomes more visible toward the end. It's rare to find a novel that combines literary quality, psychological insight, and narrative drive to this extent.
