Baize door

Question for all my followers especially USA ones!

Do you know what a Baize door is? If you saw a book of that name, would you be tempted to look further? I ‘m asking as this is the name for my new book, but I’ve discovered there is already a couple of books with similar names-although they are old and out of print!  Tell me!

And here’s a spurious Swingle picture!

  1. Baize door on its own as title ? Not quite sure it would grab me. Also not sure what it was – Google advises it is a Green woollen cloth :). Knowing, still not sure though ‘Through the Blaize Door’would certainly want me to go through it to see whats on the other side 🙂 Curiouser and curiouser 🙂 Happy to hear that you are about to publish. Congrats.

    • Thanks! It is the door that divides the servants quarters from the main house in a Vitorian house and would swing open and closed both ways! Its a big symbol in the book, Publishing is a couple of months off, somuch to do!

      • Ohh .. that is very interesting.. Sounds like you might be writing about cultural outlooks. ‘Servants’ and their connotations is so Victorian. They are usually ‘the help’ or ‘domestics’ in America – and gradually being replaced in (formerly British) Sri Lanka where it is getting harder and harder to find live in help.
        Best in your book. Baize Door sounds a captivating read. .

  2. No, I don’t. Would love to hear it! And, I am not sure. It might intrigue me enough to pick it up and read the description…
