Shikibu Murasaki is arguably Japan's greatest writer, yet so little is known of this 12th-century aristocrat that even her name is a construct. Richard Coles discusses a new fictionalised memoir of Murasaki and assesses the legacy of her great work The Tale ofGenji. Plus first-night news from Birmingham, where Quarantine,
Jim Crace 's novel about the temptation of Christ, opens in a new stage version.
