Angels & Insects: Two Novellas (Us Trade)

Random House (NY), April 1993. First American. Hardcover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #322618
ISBN: 0679405127

In these breathtaking novellas, A.S. Byatt returns to the territory she explored in "Possession": the landscape of Victorian England, where science and spiritualism are both popular manias, and domestic decorum coexists with brutality and perversion. Angels and Insects is "delicate and confidently ironic.... Byatt perfectly blends laughter and sympathy Ýwith¨ extraordinary sensuality" ("San Francisco Examiner"). "From the Trade Paperback edition."

Like Byatt's bestselling Possession, these two fascinating novellas are set in the 14th-century, weaving reality and romance. Whether it be a young woman in a country parsonage or a rare butterfly gleaming in the forests of the Amazon, Byatt's exquisite narrative questions whether in fact nature--human or otherwise--can ever be captured and tamed. Very clean copy. Mylar wrapped. First American edition (2nd printing). Signed by the author on the title page.
