Babel Tower by A. S. Byatt

Book Description

Babel Tower is the third novel in Byatt's highly acclaimed Frederica quartet. Frederica is embroiled in two law cases, twin strands of the Establishment's web: a painful divorce and custody suit and the prosecution of an 'obscene' book. Frederica's personal and legal crises mirror an age; alongside Frederica's intellectual life teaching at art school in London are the diverging cultural worlds of the Beatles and the advent of computer languages.

An odyssey of childhood, mythology and the imagination from the Booker Prize-winning author of Possession and The Children's Book

Peacock and Vine by A. S. Byatt Peacock and Vine, Hardback (July 2016)

Born a generation apart, they were seeming opposites: Mariano Fortuny, a Spanish aristocrat thrilled by the cultures of Crete and Knossos; William Morris, a British craftsman, in thrall to the myths of the North. Yet through their inventions and textiles, they inspired a new variety of art. This book traces their genius right to the source.

Features a compelling romance that draws the reader into the mirrored worlds of two couples, past and present, and explores the nature of obsession, possession and love.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » I first fell in love with Frederica, heroine of this novel, in The Virgin in the Garden and Still Life, the first two novels in A S Byatt's proposed tetralogy about life in Britain since the war. But like Possession, Babel Tower teems with ideas, characters, themes and incidents conveyed with brilliance, learning, comedy and gravity. It also resembles it in its erudition and skilful use of poetry and its juxtaposition of tense, time and tale. But at the heart of the novel is a marriage and its breakdown, and an outstanding account of the love of a mother for her son. Byatt's style is remarkable, unique and addictive. Review by Carmen Callil (Kirkus UK)
