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,

feeling--about the ways in which a glance we meant to be casual may

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"
