Waterstones Says

A luminous and intricate meditation on the beauty and cruelty of love, Byatt's Booker Prize-winning masterpiece entwines two love stories – one between two Victorian poets and another between two scholars researching them – in spellbinding prose.

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 "This is a novel for every taste: a heartbreaking Victorian love story, a take-no-prisoners comedy of contemporary academic life, and an unputdownable supernatural mystery. You turn the last page feeling stunned and elated, happy to have had the chance to read it" Washington Post "Possession is eloquent about the intense pleasures of reading. And, with sumptuous artistry, it provides a feast of them" Sunday Times "Our best novelist" Evening Standard

“Practically Perfect”

This is a stunning novel, two related love stories weave through each other, almost touching sometimes without either couple being aware of it. A story of love in all its forms, of possession by a person, by objects,... More
