Description
(Winner of the 1990 Booker Prize) A.S. Byatt's exhilarating novel of wit and romance is both an intellectual mystery and love story that echoes in the past and the present. Two young scholars in modern Britain, Roland Michell and Maud Bailey, research the lives of Victorian poets Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte, who may have had a love affair. Byatt tells their stories in parallel, including letters, journals, and poems, creating an extraordinary counterpoint of passions and ideas that is also delicious literary fun.

"It is a great, shaggy, generous, polysyllabic, triple-decker beast of a book and I haven't read anything in an age I've enjoyed so much.... It is the mixture of ideas, cunning, fairy tales, humour—the clever way she interweaves natural history, romance, poems, porches, table tapping and even, I think, Rapunzel; and it is also so funny, in two centuries, at once! I believe it's the best thing she has done. Christabel and Ash, Roland and Maud come off the page bewitchingly."—Christopher Hope
