Winner of the Booker Prize 1990

Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, at once a literary detective novel and a triumphant love story. It's the tale of a pair of young scholars investigating the lives of two Victorian poets. Following a trail of letters, journals and poems they uncover a web of passion, deceit and tragedy, and their quest becomes a battle against time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A triumphant success on every level.' - Cosmopolitan

'Teeming with more ideas than a year's worth of ordinary novels.' - Spectator

'Our best novelist.' - Evening Standard
