A.S. Byatt has been hailed by some as one of the greatest postmodern novelists in Britain. She achieved bestseller status in the United States in 1990 with her Booker Prize-winning novel Possession: A Romance, a story about a clandestine love affair between two Victorian writers and the two modern-day academics who unearth their secret; the novel was made into a film directed by Neil LaBute in 2002. Her latest novel, The Children’s Book, was shortlisted for both the Booker Prize and the South African Boeke Prize. In 2010, The Children’s Book won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Byatt's most recent book is Ragnarok - the End of the Gods.
