thefairymelusine: line drawing of a knight lying by a bank of flowers (Default)
It is, I suppose, suitable that the book with one of my two all time favourite portrayals of the lead up to a break up (the other is Withnail and I, which is what I watch when I want to feel wistful but glad about my marriage ending), is one my ex husband recommended to me before we started going out. The book in question is A.S. Byatt's "Possession", one of the books on my artistic pantheon, and the origin of my username. 

Cut for mild spoilers about plot, and rambling )
