Autumn [9780241973318]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017

'Brilliant' - Financial Times   'Glorious' - Scotsman   'A delight' - Daily Telegraph   'The novel of the year' - Guardian   'Smith at her best' - The Times

Ali Smith's novel is a meditation on a world growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. This first in a seasonal quartet casts an eye over our own time. Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearean jeu d'esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s Pop art: the centuries cast their eyes over our own history-making.

Here's where we're living. Here's time at its most contemporaneous and its most cyclic.

From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting series, wide-ranging in timescale and light-footed through histories, and a story about ageing and time and love and stories themselves.

Here comes Autumn.

'A beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities' - Guardian

'Bravura, brilliant and unsettling . . . leaving you marvelling' - Financial Times

'Fantastic' - Spectator

'Bold and brilliant' - Observer

'A terrific writer. There is an awful lot to lift the soul, not least Smith's extraordinary playful use of language' - Daily Mail

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

'Smith straddles the elegiac and the celebratory through this glorious novel' - Scotsman
