    I must admit to being completely in awe of AS Byatt I am always struck by her ualities of great luminous intelligence her keen eye her amazing sense for detail especially emotional detail I wonder what it's like to be her and just be seeing so much and understanding so much I get the sense of this incredibly rich inner life so complex and layered and full of possibility Reading her makes the world seem bigger

    Racine and the Tablecloth This is such a deeply felt story that it’s hard to avoid wondering if the central conflict between Emily an awkward unpopular bookish girl who writes brilliantly and the headmistress of her school who patronizingly distrusts Emily’s narrow focus on writing to the exclusion of traditional feminine virtues is drawn at least in part from Byatt’s own childhood Be that as it may it’s a sto

    My favorite story in this collection is The July Ghost a poignant ghost story It's not a genre that one associates with AS Byatt but she's superb at rendering atmosphere so it should really come as no surprise that she succeeds so well Someone I forget who once said that all ghost stories are about loss Case in point
