Angels and Insects by A.S. Byatt
Sonia’s first review of the year

A re-read of an old favorite.

Merged review:

Two wonderful novellas full of all the things I love: English country houses, governesses, dark secrets, scholars, mediums, seances, people longing for what they can't have, etc. Each has a perfect ending. I look forward to my next re-read!
