Inhaltsangabe: Babel Tower is the third novel in Byatt's highly acclaimed Frederica quartet. Frederica is embroiled in two law cases, twin strands of the Establishment's web: a painful divorce and custody suit and the prosecution of an 'obscene' book. Frederica's personal and legal crises mirror an age; alongside Frederica's intellectual life teaching at art school in London are the diverging cultural worlds of the Beatles and the advent of computer languages.
"Frederica is one of the more interesting characters in contemporary fiction" (J.M.Coetzee New York Review of Books)
"A formidable feast of a book... A. S. Byatt can use her extraordinary mind to probe passional conflicts more hair-raisingly well than any thriller-writer" ( Daily Telegraph)
"In this exuberant and vastly ambitious novel, A. S. Byatt has made both an intellectual chronicle and an intimate history... This book is about the life of art and the art of living, and its prose is charged with powerful images" ( Harpers & Queen)
"A remarkable book, of exceptional gravity and serious charm... it balances an acute sense of the values of art and intellect with an imaginative sympathy. Its ambition is almost unique in the English novel" ( Spectator)
"Tartly funny, emotionally engrossing and headily intelligent" ( Sunday Times)

Anbieterinformationen: BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God¿s Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 15 years of being ¿internet only¿ I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With nearly 30,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand.
