Ugh, this is too much. Need to stop reading books by white English ladies, in particular, ones by A.S. Byatt. These stories date back to 1987, and are not as compelling as her more recent work. Too self-conscious, too aware of the act of writing fiction, of creating, too many narrative asides to the reader. Get over it. A few stories are worth reading, however, especially the first - "Racine and the Tablecloth" - whose title alone could compensate for the entire collection.
