Description

Autumn 2016: Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. And the UK is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever. Ali Smith's new novel is a meditation on a world filling up with borders, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. From Shakespearian jeu d'esprit, via Keatsian melancholy and the sheer bright energy of 1960s Pop Art, this first in a quartet of novels casts an eye over our own time, asking who we are, where we are, right now. Here is time, ever-changing, ever cyclical. Here comes Autumn.

Highly recommended

What a diverse read this book is! With a lot of clever writing this book covers some important issues that occurred in Britain. It's​ set in the current time line with also flashes from 1960s. Story of unusual friendship between a man and a little girl and their experiences with life. This book will require several reads and then one might understand it completely!
