Read full description of the books:



Perfectly named book about AS Byatt's own mind as well as the minds of George Eliot and the section she calls: The Female Voice (Cather, Bowen, Plath, Toni Morrison even Georgette Heyer, despite Germaine Greer's ferious dis). I especially liked her attack on Barbara Pym, although I could only stomach two Pyms, I agree with Byatt. I skimmed a lot of the Mind book: not interested or appalled by Freud, post-modernist and post-(WWII)fiction. This is a wonderful book of collected essays by a writer serious about her craft; as a writer I was enlightened by and taught some valuable tools.
