I had a copy of Possession at one point and I'm not sure if I still have it. The blurb on A.S. Byatt books always seem so interesting to me but I then I find the books to be really hard to get into.

I read Daniel Mason's The Piano Tuner earlier this year. It was a very interesting novel. I hope you get a chance to read and enjoy it.

I have Sea of Poppies waiting in the pile, part of my Booker challenge book readings. I read Marry Mozart a long time ago and I realize I don't remember much of it! I need to refresh my memory with the notes. The Piano Tuner is a great historical fiction if you're interested in Burma. :)
