First published in 1964 The Shadow of the Sun is the story of Anna Severell's struggle at the age of seventeen to evolve her own personality in the shadow of her father, Henry Severell, a famous English novelist. In the introduction to this edition the 1990 Booker Prize winning author looks back at the novel's genesis, and the problems she faced as a woman writing her first novel.
"A.S.Byatt's first novel, written in her early twenties, is simultaneously a rehearsal of the themes of her later fiction and a major work in its own right. Her concern with precise nuances of thought and feeling and their representation in prose is almost unparalleled in contemporary writing. The Shadow of the Sun is a tremendous achievement" -- DJ Taylor "In her very first novel, The Shadow of the Sun, A.S. Byatt showed herself to be that rarity, and English writer unafraid of the novel of ideas. Yet she is also the most sensuous of novelists - fictions made flesh are her passion" -- Christopher Hope "Byatt is a wonderful writer, constantly engaging wherever she takes us" The Times
