Still LifeStill Life by A.S. Byatt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It continues following Frederica Potter as she goes to Cambridge as well as the other members of her family. The backdrop of this novel is Alexander writing a play about Van Gogh, and it's full of excerpts of Van Gogh's letters and discussions of his paintings. I also love the way Elizabeth David is mentioned several times throughout this text; her cookbooks are such a joy to read, almost like novels themselves. Still Life deals with the fallout of the events of the first novel in a very satisfying way and leaves me eager to begin the next book in the series.
