Staff Recommendation: The Children's Book

Don’t be daunted by this book’s length (almost 700 pages); Byatt is a brilliant storyteller, especially when exploring the Victorian era through WWI. She covers an encyclopedic array of political and cultural topics through the complicated relationships of two families ruled by artists—a children’s book author and a potter—whose mythic creations hint at dark family secrets.
