"Synopsis" by , In her first full-length work of fiction since Possession, for which she won the Booker Prize, A. S. Byatt interweaves the private passions of a large number of characters with the chaotic drama of 1960s England.

The protagonist of Babel Tower is Frederica Potter, the brainy, independent heroine of two previous Byatt novels. Now she is fleeing an abusive marriage and trying to find her way in a world where sex, schooling, and even language are being reinvented.

Byatt juxtaposes Frederica's narrative with a disturbing book-within-a-book, a monstrous Sadeian fable whose author will be put on trial for obscenity at the same time that Frederica finds herself fighting in court for the right to keep her son. What ensues is a novel as gripping as any courtroom thriller, abundantly atmospheric, sardonically funny, and crackling with Byatt's signature ardor and erudition.
