Set in 18th century Korea and the present day, Margaret Drabble's The Red Queen is a rich and atmospheric novel about love, and what it means to be remembered.

200 years after being plucked from obscurity to marry the Crown Prince of Korea, the Red Queen's ghost decides to set the record straight about her extraordinary existence - and Dr Babs Halliwell, with her own complicated past, is the perfect envoy. Why does the Red Queen pick Babs to keep her story alive, and what else does she want from her? A terrific novel set in 18th century Korea and the present day, The Red Queen is a rich and atmospheric novel about love, and what it means to be remembered

    (Sheffield, 1939) scrittrice inglese. Sorella di A.S. Byatt e della critica d’arte H. Langton, muovendo spesso dall’esperienza autobiografica indaga, con sottile humor britannico, il dissidio femminile fra modelli di comportamento tradizionali e aspirazioni personali, denunciando l’ipocrisia di una società ancora pesantemente condizionata dal conservatorismo, dalle gerarchie sociali e dal potere della ricchezza (La macina, The Millstone, 1965, nt; I reami dell’oro, The Realms of Gold, 1975, nt; La via radiosa, The Radiant Way, 1987; La strega di Exmoor, The Witch of Exmoor, 1996, nt; La signora del mare, The Sea Lady, 2006, nt).
