Product description


"Tartly funny, emotionally engrossing and headily intelligent" (Sunday Times)

"A formidable feast of a book... A. S. Byatt can use her extraordinary mind to probe passional conflicts more hair-raisingly well than any thriller-writer" (Daily Telegraph)

"In this exuberant and vastly ambitious novel, A. S. Byatt has made both an intellectual chronicle and an intimate history... This book is about the life of art and the art of living, and its prose is charged with powerful images" (Harpers & Queen)

"A remarkable book, of exceptional gravity and serious charm... it balances an acute sense of the values of art and intellect with an imaginative sympathy. Its ambition is almost unique in the English novel" (Spectator)


A sequel to "Virgin in the Garden" and "Still Life". A cast of characters play out their personal dramas amid the clashing politics, passionate ideals and stirring languages of the early-1960s. Their crises mirror some of the major world events of the age in which they live.
