    A S Byatt - Introduction by David Mitchell
    464 pages

    A luminous selection of short stories from the Booker prize-winning A. S. Byatt, celebrating over thirty years of writingWith an introduction by David MitchellByatt takes her readers to a place that is rich in ideas, vivid in colour and wholly unforgettable.

    Mirrors shatter at the hairdressers when a middle-aged client explodes in rage. Snow dusts the warm body of a princess honing it into something sharp and frosted. Summer sunshine flickers on the face of a smiling child who may or may not be real.

    Peopled by artists, poets and fabulous creatures, these stories travel from the ancient mythic world to an English sweet factory, a Chinese restaurant to a Mediterranean swimming pool, a Turkish bazaar to a fairy-tale palace. Blazing with creativity, they show what lies beneath the veneer of the ordinary, and reveal the fantastical possibilities beyond.
