Sinopsis: The constant theme running through this collection of short stories, the first collection by A.S. Byatt, is that of repetition, taking the form of family patterns recurring across generations, the return of the past in the form of ghosts and the disruptive force of family stories. A.S. Byatt was the winner of the Silver Pen Award for her novel "Still Life" (1986). Her other novels include "Shadow of a Sun", "The Game" (1983) and "The Virgin in the Garden" (1981).
"Superbly observed...spare, concise and clever in the best sense...do not miss this collection" (Robin Lane Fox Financial Times)
"A fascinating mixed bag, unified by the dignified, restrained strenuousness with which their subjects attempt to piece together a life" (William Henry Holmes Daily Mail)
"These stories are the product of a distinctive and powerful imagination...superbly satisfying" (Caroline Moore Literary Review)
"Beautifully crafted, supple and compassionate" ( Irish Times)
