Not my favourite of Byatt’s novels & struggled a few times to keep reading but, as always, her tales are complex and well considered so I certainly found parts of it extremely interesting, thought-provoking (such as the role of the biographer). Can’t help but think the title has some connection with Chaucer’s Canterbury Tale though not really sure how etc.
