Autumn by Ali Smith


Bookseller Review by Elle:

I’ve decided to make my way through Ali Smith’s Seasonal quartet this year, and what better way to start than by reading ‘Autumn’ in Autumn?

This did not disappoint. Ali Smith chronicles the real-life timeline in which the novels were written and ‘Autumn’ touches on Brexit and the current issues of the time. Ultimately, however, it’s a really touching and gentle coming of age story about the friendship between a young girl and an old man who lives nearby. Such elegant writing, and she makes it look so easy!

‘Undoubtedly Smith at her best. Puckish, yet elegant; angry, but comforting’ The Times

A 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 . . .
