This is an auction for THE GAME by A S Byatt.

Amazon.com reviews:

"The Game is a lush and disturbing novel portraying a sibling rivalry which compels the reader to reconsider the uses and misuses of imagination. when they were little girls, Cassandra and Julia played a game in which they entered an alternate world modelled on the landscapes of Arthurian romance. Now the sisters are grown, and hostile strangers--until a figure from their past, a man they once both loved and suffered over, re-enters their lives."

"This is a strange and gorgeous book. I love Byatt's writing. I wanted to strangle several of the characters, though. One line in "The Game" became my meditation for the results of the 2010 election: 'It is always foolish to care about what one can't help. But unfortunately we never know with any certainty what we can't help. And we are not usually capable of not caring.'"
