First novel by the great A.S. Byatt. It wasn't great, but it was good. Must like an in-depth character study. Much of the story occurs in people's heads. And the people were interesting, but awful. I found it interesting for the feminist themes--a young woman's struggle for identity in 1950's and 1960's England, when it was rare to have both academic aspirations and hopes of a marriage and family.
