    In these breathtakingly accomplished novellas, Byatt returns to the landscape of Victorian England, where science and spiritualism are both popular manias. The shipwrecked naturalist who is the protagonist of 'Morpho Eugenia' is rescued by a family whose clandestine passions come to seem as inscutable as the behavior of insects. In 'The Conjugal Angel,' a circle of fictional mediums finds itself haunted by the ghost of a very real historical personage. 337p. Kindle Price: $11.99

    • Publisher: Vintage Books
    • Published: June 1997
    In her first full-length work of fiction since Possession, Byatt deftly interweaves the private passions of a large number of characters with the chaotic drama of 1960s England. Frederica Potter, the clever, independent heroine of two previuos Byatt novels, is now fleeing a violent marriage and trying to find her way in a world in which everything, from the rules of sex to language itself, is being reinvented. Yet her narrative is juxtaposed with excerpts of a disturbing book-within-a-book that may be an exercise in Sadeian pornography or a corrosive fable of the consequences of pure freedom. 622p.
