Synopsis: In these breathtaking novellas, A.S. Byatt returns to the territory she explored in Possession: the landscape of Victorian England, where science and spiritualism are both popular manias, and domestic decorum coexists with brutality and perversion. Angels and Insects is "delicate and confidently ironic.... Byatt perfectly blends laughter and sympathy [with] extraordinary sensuality" ( San Francisco Examiner).
From the Trade Paperback edition.
From the Inside Flap: A collection of short stories including subjects as diverse as memories, marriage, insects and ghosts. A.S. Byatt's other books include Possession, winner of the 1990 Booker Prize.
