Foyles Notes

Read our exclusive interview with Ali Smith

If you’ve read Ali Smith before you’ll know what a treat awaits you. And if you haven’t, you should! Ali takes on some grand themes here – life, death, the passing of time, the power of stories, growing up, friendship and love – all executed with her trademark lightness of touch, joy of language and gentle humour. And so contemporary is it, it’s as if the ink has not yet dried on the page: it offers a real snapshot – the first in a novel - of the confusion and turmoil that followed the Brexit vote, giving it an immediacy that demands attention. Read it. You won’t regret it.

Frances, Web Editor

Synopsis

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017'In a country apparently divided against itself, a writer such as Smith is more valuable than a whole parliament of politicians' Financial Times'Undoubtedly Smith at her best. Puckish, yet elegant; angry, but comforting' The Times 'A beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities... The first post-Brexit novel' GuardianA breathtakingly inventive new novel from the Man Booker-shortlisted and Baileys Prize-winning author of How to be both Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer.Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever . . .'Terrific, extraordinary, playful... There is an awful lot to lift the soul' Daily Mail'Bold and brilliant' Observer
