Read in January, 1998

Frederica Potter is one of the most memorable heroines of twentieth-century literature. The other books in this series are good, but this one is outstanding, and despite the split narrative, very compelling. I related so much to Frederica's sexual, professional, and feminist struggles with her life, and when I got pregnant, I though about her a lot. He's wonderfully drawn, and even the hyper-ridiculous backdrop of early seventies avant-garde insanity Byatt uses as her setting doesn't ruin this book. Wonderful, wonderful stuff.
