The Matisse Stories, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

This brilliant collection has been called "a masterpiece" by the Sunday Telegraph.

Each of the three stories is touched in a different way by the paintings of Henri Matisse.

Their subjects' lives unravel from simple beginnings -- a trip to the hair dresser, a cleaning woman's passion for knitting, lunch in a Chinese restaurant but gradually the veneer of ordinariness is peeled back to expose pain, reveal desire, or express the intensity of joy in color and creation.

This is not Byatt's most substantial work, but this is a deliciously witty and erudite set of three stories inspired by Matisse's painting.
