The Matisse Stories

The Matisse Stories

(0)Review Product


A.S. Byatt is internationally known as a novelist, short-story writer and critic. Educated at York and Newnham College, Cambridge, she taught at the Central School of Art and Design, and was Senior Lecturer in English at University College, London, before becoming a full-time writer in 1983. She was appointed CBE in 1990 and DBE in 1999.

These three stories celebrate the eye even as they reveal its unexpected proximity to the heart. For if each of A.S. Byatt's narratives is in some way inspired by a painting of Henri Matisse, each is also about the intimate connection between seeing and feeling - about the ways in which a glance we meant to be casual may suddenly call forth the deepest reserves of our being.

In A.S. Byatt's hands, these tableaux come to life, exposing the unruliness of grief, desire and creativity. Beautifully written, intensely observed, "The Matisse Stories" is fiction of spellbinding authority.
