Foyles Notes

Read our exclusive author interview

Last year, four different people had a copy of Ali Smith’s Autumn from me for Christmas – and they all loved it. The next instalment of her seasonal quartet, Winter, in every way lives up to the promise of the first – Smith’s love of language bursts through in a book that draws inspiration from A Christmas Carol, Shakespeare, and Charlie Chaplin. It’s hard to think of a better writer working in English today; this is an alert, nuanced book infused with joy and empathy. That’s four Christmas presents ticked off for me this year.

Synopsis

The dazzling second novel in Ali Smith's essential Seasonal Quartet -- from the Baileys Prize-winning, Man Booker-shortlisted author of Autumn and How to be bothWinter? Bleak. Frosty wind, earth as iron, water as stone, so the old song goes. The shortest days, the longest nights. The trees are bare and shivering. The summer's leaves? Dead litter. The world shrinks; the sap sinks. But winter makes things visible. And if there's ice, there'll be fire. In Ali Smith's Winter, lifeforce matches up to the toughest of the seasons. In this second novel in her acclaimed Seasonal cycle, the follow-up to her sensational Autumn, Smith's shape-shifting quartet of novels casts a merry eye over a bleak post-truth era with a story rooted in history, memory and warmth, its taproot deep in the evergreens: art, love, laughter. It's the season that teaches us survival. Here comes Winter.
