The Matisse stories

Book Cover
Average Rating
Random House,
Pub. Date:
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. Beautifully written, intensely observed,The Matisse Storiesis fiction of spellbinding authority. "Full of delight and humor...The Matisse Storiesis studded with brilliantly apt images and a fine sense for subtleties of conversation and emotion."--San Francisco Chronicle From the Trade Paperback edition.
