Description

With Ali Smith’s dazzling series conclusion arriving this summer now is the perfect time to read WINTER CHOSEN AS A BOOK OF THE YEAR by: The Times Guardian Observer Daily Telegraph Evening Standard New York Times . . . ‘Dazzling. Grief and pain are transfigured by luminous moments of humour insight and connection . . . Even in the bleak midwinter Smith is evergreen’ Daily Telegraph From the Baileys Prize-winning Man Booker-shortlisted author of Autumn and How to be both comes the unmissable second novel in Ali Smith’s acclaimed ‘Seasonal’ quartet Winter? 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. ‘Graceful mischievous joyful . . . Infused with some much-needed humour happiness and hope’ Independent ‘A novel of great ferocity tenderness and generosity of spirit . . . Luminously beautiful’ Observer
