Summary
SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017A SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLERA breathtakingly inventive new novel from the Man Booker-shortlisted and Baileys Prize-winning author of How to be both 'The novel of the year is obviously Ali Smith's Autumn, which managed the miracle of making at least a kind of sense out of post-Brexit Britain' Observer 'Humour, grace, solace... A light-footed meditation on mortality, mutability and how to keep your head in troubled times' Guardian'Transcendental writing about art, death and all the dimensions of love' Deborah Levy, author of Hot Milk and The Cost of LivingAutumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. That's what it felt like for Keats in 1819.How about Autumn 2016? Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom 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 growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. This first in a seasonal quartet casts an eye over our own time. Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearian jeu d'esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s Pop art: the centuries cast their eyes over our own history-making.Here's where we're living. Here's time at its most contemporaneous and its most cyclic.From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting series, wide-ranging in timescale and light-footed through histories, and a story about ageing and time and love and stories themselves.Here comes Autumn
