"Frederica Potter, 'doomed to be intelligent', plunges into Cambridge University life greedy for knowledge, sex and love. In Yorkshire her sister Stephanie has abandoned academe for the cosy frustration of the family. A. S. Byatt illuminates the inevitable conflicts between ambition and domesticity, confinement and self-fulfilment, while providing a subtle yet incisive observation of the intellectual and cultural life of England during the 1950's."--Back cover

Overlong, overblown, pretentious, tedious! I gave up before the halfway mark. And it was one of those books where some cretin had made pencil notes including dictionary definitions of supposedly rare words!
