Possession

Possession - A.S. Byatt 3.8 stars really for minor imperfections in the whole 'detective' plot but it's still a dazzling novel for readers written by a passionate reader. I liked the French Lieutenant's Woman better (even though on the whole it's a less polished novel).

Can someone write a properly introspective, feminist novel on contemporary feminist issues now that we've done the whole exploring the plight of women through Victorian fan-fiction thing (elegantly written, impressively inventive, unabashedly postmodern but fan fiction nonetheless) twice?
