Product Details

Praise

“An elegant collection [filled with] richly resonant prose, which evokes the look and feel of bodies and paintings…. Luminous.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A. S. Byatt’s three-tale sequence hits the imagination’s retina with all the vibrant splatter of an exploding paintbox…. Everywhere, scenes sizzle with chromatic intensity.” —Sunday Times

“Full of delight and humor … The Matisse Stories is studded with brilliantly apt images and a fine sense for subtleties of conversation and emotion.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“A writer of dazzling inventiveness.” —Time

“Brilliant… Byatt’s fiction, like Matisse’s art, pays close attention to colours and contours of surfaces, then probes beneath them to reveal further suprises.” —Newsday

“Exquisite triptych… The Matisse Stories is richly drawn and touches upon things that matter to people.” —People
