My commercial for Possession

Imagine... You are a man who feels utterly useless within the confines of his own life.
Imagine... Your damp basement flat reeks constantly of the urine of innumerable cats and your girlfriend (whom you no longer love)looks at you with eyes full fo disappointment.
Imagine... You come upon a book one day that contains a sheet of paper that turns out to be a treasure.
Can life ever be the same again?
If you've ever been obssessed by an idea you'll unterstand Roland Michell, who first stumbles, then plunges into and enigma. An antidote to the feeling of cynacism many of us have today, Possession: A Romance, the 1990 Booker Prize winning novel by A S Byatt firmly states that the intangibles of life including literature and poetry matter. You'll encounter the passion that makes people lovers and scholars. You'll travel from 1986 to mid-Victorian England and back again. You'll wonder with the intrigue of being possessed.
