A. S. Byatt wows audiences again. Frederica's agonizing personal life merges with the angst-ridden literary world of the 1960's as she tries to make a life for herself after divorce in the midst of a lawsuit against an "obscene" book on which she's working. BABEL TOWER has a large and diverse cast, which Eileen Atkins handles with aplomb. Even beyond her command of varying accents of the British Isles, she conveys the ever-present, undulating hysteria of Frederica; the gruffness of her abusive husband; the delightful foppishness of Jude, author of the chastised book. In all, this entertaining audiobook is a feast of fine content and presentation. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 96]
