The Matisse Stories

This A. S. Byatt book, The Matisse Stories, tells tales of lives that are all brushed in some way by the work of Henri Matisse. Finding the unusual poetry in everyday lives, the book encourages you to step into a rosy cloud of a hairdressers, be awestruck by a fringed school disco outfit of acid yellow, salmon pink and swimming pool blue, then decide whether the fruit of paradise is the orange?

Product story

This is prose working precisely and elegantly, with quick deft, brush-strokes... Under the calm and lovely surface, rendered in a heightened naturalistic way, something wilder and less susceptible to order and reason is going on
Michèle Roberts, Independent

A. S. Byatt was Senior Lecturer in English at University College, London, before becoming a full-tme writer in 1983. She was appointed CBE in 1990 and DBE in 1999.
