Winter: from the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted author

£8.99

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.

Description

From the Women’s Prize-winning, Man Booker-shortlisted author comes the unmissable second novel in Ali Smith’s acclaimed Seasonal quartet – the perfect book to read this winter!

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 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.

ALL FOUR INSTALMENTS OF THE QUARTET ARE AVAILABLE TO READ NOW!

‘Dazzling. Grief and pain are transfigured by luminous moments of humour, insight and connection . . . Even in the bleak midwinter, Smith is evergreen’
Daily Telegraph

‘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
