A.S. Byatt, the celebrated author and literary critic, has died at the age of eighty-seven.

Her publisher confirmed the death.

Byatt was perhaps best known for her Booker Prize-winning novel Possession, whose publication came in the midst of her Frederica Quartet, and the Booker shortlist choice The Children’s Book.

You can read Byatt's obituary in the Guardian, The New York Times, and BookRiot.
