Review

An endearing first novel, ELLE

Beautifully written in precise, poetic prose that successfully evokes the love of like for like, OBSERVER

I have been looking forward to seeing Ali Smith's novel since reading FREE LOVE and I have not been disappointed. I've thoroughly enjoyed the book, I love Ali Smith's prose - clear and lucid and at the same time full of little quirks and subtleties that make hers an individual voice. Not only was the novel beautifully written but it was fascinating reading, Kate Atkinson

This impressive debut novel... is full of subtleties and surprises, SUNDAY TIMES --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

There's Amy and there's Ash. There's ice and there's fire. There's England and there's Scotland.
Ali Smith evokes the twin spirits of time and place in an extraordinarily powerful first novel. Subtle and complex, seductive and exhilarating, here is a story about what it means to be alive: this is what it's like.
'Ingenious, shimmering fiction, written with a poetic grace that subtly illuminates the tensions between hope and desire, between past and present' Scotland on Sunday
'An elegiac, haunting quality . . . Smith's relish for language is captivating' Literary Review
'Endearing' Elle
'Beautifully written in precise, poetic prose that successfully evokes the love of like for like' Observer

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
