Random House, Inc. 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 Stories is fiction of spellbinding authority.
"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
Baker & Taylor In a trio of short stories--each inspired by a particular Matisse painting--the ordinary events of everyday life are stripped away to reveal the extraordinary pain, desire, joy, and creativity of human existence. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.
