Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dame Antonia Susan Duffy, DBE is an English novelist, poet and Booker Prize winner. In 2008, The Times newspaper named her among their list of The 50 greatest British writers since 1945. Byatt was born as Antonia Susan Drabble, the daughter of John Drabble, QC, and the Kathleen Bloor, a scholar of Browning. Byatt was educated at Sheffield High School and the Quaker Mount School, and noted in an interview in 2009 "I am not a Quaker, of course, because I'm anti-Christian and the Quakers are a form of Christianity but their religion is wonderful - you simply sat in silence and listened to the nature of things." She went on to Newnham College, Cambridge, Bryn Mawr in the United States, and Somerville College, Oxford. Sister to novelist Margaret Drabble and art historian Helen Langdon, Byatt lectured in the Department of Extra-Mural Studies of London University, the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and from 1972 to 1983 at University College London
