Reviews

  • Those new to the world of Byatt might well begin here, with these tales-within-tales, which one can read as anything from contemporary allegories - such as the superb Dragon's Breath, evoking every idyll that ever fell foul of war or famine - to sheer celebrations of storytelling itself

    Vogue
  • The familiar elements of fairy story come to life under A.S. Byatt's touch...with lightness, precision, grace

    Observer
  • A cerebral extravaganza, bristling with ideas

    Spectator
  • The fairy story is obviously a form that fascinates A.S. Byatt, it suits her spare, cool prose and this collection enables her to create very different effects... a beautifully produced book
