Representing a wide spectrum of some of our most significant modern and contemporary authors, the Vintage Readers offer an attractive, accessible sampling of writing that matters/

“Byatt has . . . a roving imagination; an uncanny ability to create ageless, read-aloud prose . . . and a fascination with the variety and uses of art.” —The Washington Post Book World

Fabulist, realist, literary critic, winner of the Booker Prize for her now-classic Possession, A. S. Byatt has boundless intellectual and literary gifts and a fathomless imagination on which to nourish them.

Vintage Byatt includes a self-contained section from the bestselling Possession; selections from The Matisse Stories, The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye, Sugar and Other Stories, and the recent Little Black Book of Stories; and essays from the collection Passions of the Mind.
