Dame Antonia Byatt, DBE

NOVELIST

The internationally renowned author A S Byatt grew up in an extremely competitive, academic household. Her scholarly mother felt trapped as a housewife and when Byatt’s became a teenager, the two personalities clashed. Byatt found solace and escape in literature. Included in Byatt’s 16 works of fiction are her Booker Prize-winning novel, Possession, which has since been made into a film, and The Children’s Book, which was shortlisted for the accolade in 2009, narrowly missing out on the award to Hilary Mantel’s novel, Wolf Hall.
