Information
First UK edition, first print hardback of THE MATISSE STORIES by A.S. Byatt and published by Chatto & Windus, London in 1993. Signed and dated by Byatt on the title page. Full numberline 1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2 on the copyright page.

The book is in near fine condition (black cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with no more than very light wear to the unclipped dust jacket, which is protected inside a removeable archival sleeve. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

This book contains three stories each haunted in a different way by the paintings of Henri Matisse. Lives unravel from simple beginnings - a trip to the hair dresser, a cleaning woman's passion for knitting, lunch in a Chinese restaurant.


Gradually the veneer of ordinariness is peeled back to expose pain, reveal desire, or express the intensity of joy in color and creation. Even against our will it seems, great art illuminates the patterns and meaning of our lives.
