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 and denser and brighter and important This wonderful book of short stories demonstrates a wide range of styles and moods from witty ghost stories

Sugar and Other Stories

Ompels us to inhabit other lives and returns us to our own with new knowledge compassion and a sense of wonde. Every time I read Byatt I find myself choosing my words carefully for the hour or two after I put the book down Her word choice is always so precise and her tone so controlled yet revealing I especially loved the title story and the line None of these words none of these things recall him The gold winged fire haired figure in the doorway is and was myth though he did come back he was there at that time and I did make that leap Perhaps my favorite description of the futility and necessity of words

Ions the dizzying abyss of loss and the elaborate memories we construct against it resulting in a book that c. Complex and beautifully worded this was a very uneven read for me I enjoyed the first Racine and the Tablecloth and last Sugar most with On the Day that EM Forster Died coming in third I loathed The Dried Witch I prefer her long narratives much and look forward to getting to those I ve missed

    This is one of those books that makes me wish it were possible to use half stars in rating it It's a very uneven collection certainly not a four star book but the best stories in it are good enough that three stars seems a bit paltry Byatt's command of language is as always excellent and I can only admire the way she seems to ignore all rules about story making and to write only to please herself and work out
