In "Morpho Eugenia," a shipwrecked naturalist is rescued by a family whose clandestine passions come to seem as inscrutable as the behavior of insects. In "The Conjugial Angel," a circle of fictional mediums finds itself haunted by the ghost of a very real historical personage.
Angels & Insects offers further proof of Byatt's prodigious powers and magical sympathy for characters who might be our great-great-grandparents.

"[May's] is a gifted storyteller's voice, perfect for a tale of Victorian England, full of expectation and interest in the wonderments of what she has to say." (AudioFile)
