Morpho Eugenia and The Conjugial Angel are two fascinating novellas and like A. S. Byatt's Booker Prize-winning novel, POSSESSION, they are set in the mid-nineteenth century, weaving fact and fiction, reality and romance.

Industry Reviews

"Her plot is as compelling as that of a classical detective story, but it is the quality of the writing - its use and unity of metaphor, its sensuous language, its wit and intellectual playfulness - which renders it remarkable" -- Amanda Craig Literary Review "A. S. Byatt is one of our finest living novelists, who manages to tease and to satisfy both the intellect and the imagination ... I am already a convinced admirer of the works of A. S. Byatt. ANGELS & INSECTS should win over many more enthusiasts" -- Caroline Moore Daily Telegraph "Victorian and fun ... marvellous and maddening ... a display and a delight" -- Nicci Gerrard Observer "Her best work to date" Times Literary Supplement
