As girls, Julia and Cassandra played a game in which they entered the imaginary landscapes of Arthurian romance. Now, a man the sisters once both loved reenters their lives, drawing them into a game whose rules are far more intricate--and whose stakes are incalculably higher--than the one they played as children. "Byatt is a gifted observer, able to discern the exact details that bring whole worlds into being".--New York Times Book Review.
