The Biographer's Tale

A.S. Byatt

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

From the award-winning author of “Possession” comes an ingenious novel about love and literary sleuthing: a dazzling fiction woven out of one man's search for fact.Here is the story of Phineas G. Nanson, a disenchanted graduate student who decides to escape the world of postmodern literary theory and immerse himself in the messiness of “real life” by writing a biography of a great biographer. In a series of adventures that are by turns intellectual and comic, scientific and sensual, Phineas tracks his subject to the deserts of Africa and the maelstrom of the Arctic. Along the way he comes to rely on two women, one of whom may be the guide he needs out of the dizzying labyrinth of his research and back into his own life. A tantalizing yarn of detection and desire, The Biographer's Tale is a provocative look at “truth” in biography and our perennial quest for certainty.
