Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In these breathtaking novellas, A.S. Byatt returns to the territory she explored inPossession: the landscape of Victorian England, where science and spiritualism are both popular manias, and domestic decorum coexists with brutality and perversion.Angels and Insectsis "delicate and confidently ironic.... Byatt perfectly blends laughter and sympathy [with] extraordinary sensuality" (San Francisco Examiner). From the Trade Paperback edition.
