Product description

Review

This 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)
