Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

I've read Fingersmith, Tipping the Vlevet and The Night Watch. Fingersmith is one of my all time favourite books. Tipping the Velvet isn't as clever or engaging and is also much more sexually graphic. The Night Watch is quite different as it is set in the 1940's as oppossed to the 1800's, I enjoyed it but wasn't impressed with the ending. I intend to read Affinity as soon as possible.
