Dealer Notes
“The new novel by A. S. Byatt is as heavy as a brick; and a brick, in a way, is what it is – part of the Tower of Babel of which she has appointed herself assistant architect. [...] The tower that Byatt has built is elaborate, imposing and the view from the top vertiginous.” (Kellaway, 1996).
