Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.

Quotes & Highlights

“A.S. Byatt is a storyteller who could keep a sultan on the edge of his throne for a thousand and one nights.” —New York Times Book Review

Description

An intellectually exhilarating story of wit, romance and lush detail, Possession became a national bestseller, perennial book club favorite, and was made into a 2002 film. Her novella Morpho Eugenia, in which she examines the similarities between anthills and 19th century manor households, was made into the 1995 film Angels & Insects.

A self-described greedy reader, Byatt weaves her many interests – biology, history, and philosophy among them – into her work, resulting in books teeming with characters and ideas. Or, as she has stated, novels with “the whole world in them.” In her latest work, a deliciously dark short story collection called The Little Black Book of Stories, Byatt continues to mix folk and fairy tales with everyday life in five tales filled with unexpected thrills.
