Hardcover first edition - The third of a planned quartet of novels set in the mid-twentieth century - in this massive novel, "in Byatt's vision the presiding genious of the 1960s seems to be a blend of the Marquis de Sade and The Hobbit. The resulting confusion, charted with a brilliant imaginative sympathy, is as comic as it is threatening and bizarre." 623 pp. ISBN: 0-679-405135.
