Possession by A.S. Byatt in Heartland Blue
Possession by A.S. Byatt in a Heartland Blue style book jacket. When mild-mannered and unremarkable academic Roland Michell stumbles upon a letter written by Victorian poet Randolph Ash to a mysterious woman with whom he seems to be infatuated, he is determined to uncover the truth. Winner of the 1990 Booker Prize, Possession defies categorization. Rich in symmetry and symbolism, brimming over with myth, poetry and fairy tale, Byatt's masterpiece is part literary detective story, part academic satire and part historical novel. At its heart, however, is a compelling romance that draws the reader into the mirrored worlds of two couples, past and present, and explores the nature of obsession, possession and love.
This book is a clothbound hardcover volume published by Everyman’s Library, complete with silk reading-ribbons, acid-free, natural cream-colored paper, and European-style half-round spines. Each book is wrapped in a hand-folded jacket custom designed by Juniper Books.
