A S BYATT IN THE ABYSS
Novelist A. S. Byatt has died aged 87. She was best known for her lengthy romance tome Possession, a Booker-winning novel where two academics piece together the hitherto-unknown relationship between two fictional Victorian poets. Besides the Booker, her many honours included the damehood and a species of beetle being named after her. She was picked by Bibliogryphon’s Bookworm Food and There is nothing like a dame.
