One of Britain's most acclaimed writers, Booker Prize winner, A.S. Byatt's work is both profound and joyful. "A Whistling Woman" is the fourth novel in a quartet which includes "The Virgin in the Garden", "Still Life" and "Babel Tower". Byatt's allure as an author is her sensual, almost high-Gothic writing style coupled with the English sensibleness of her characters.
The work of the best British writers is often as intricate, confusing and as lovely as their wallpaper. Signed on the title page.
