Introducing The Shadow of the Sun A. S. Byatt’s debut tells the story of a very hot summer and a stormy autumn in the life of a creative family in the North of England. The novel is divided into two parts. In the first part the characters are introduced: Caroline Severell is married to Henry Severell, a famous novelist. They have two children – Jeremy and Anna.

Oliver Canning works at Cambridge University and is an expert on Henry Severell’s work. During the period they stay with the Severells it is too hot to do much. Anna takes Oliver to see the stable where she has worked and spends time with him tentatively preparing for her eventual acceptance by Cambridge University. Her mother Caroline and Margaret Canning run the household together and talk. Her father Henry works in his study and leaves the house once for a long walk, his way of thinking out creative problems.
