Two of the best stories are "The Day E. M. Forster Died" and "The Next Room." The first story is a brilliant, understated reflection on how death shapes up our art. The story made me think about what I missed the last time I read Howards End. "The Next Room" is Byatt at her best combination of sharp observation and compassion, mundane and extraordinary. I liked several of the other stories. Some of them so probed the character's vulnerabilities and fears,though, that they were more painful than pleasurable to read.
