From the Publisher:
Presents a collection of tales, including "Aladdin," "The Wonderful Lamp," "Sinbad the Seaman," and "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves."
Antonia Susan Byatt was born in Sheffield, a Yorkshire steel town, where she led what she describes as an isolated childhood and adolescence despite the presence of three siblings. Her mother was educated at Cambridge but gave up teaching to raise her family--a choice she was bitter about. Her attitude strongly affected Antonia, who also went to Cambridge. She also married young and had four children; she has been married twice, and her only son was killed by a drunk driver in 1970. She maintains residences in London and in the south of France. Her present husband, Peter Duffy, is an investment analyst. Her sister is the novelist Margaret Drabble; a natural rivalry between the two of them passed with the years. Known as a "Victorian postmodernist," Byatt writes meaty, erudite, old-fashioned novels; ANGELS AND INSECTS was made into a film in 1995.
