Ali Smith Companion Piece
Following her astonishing quartet of Seasonal novels, Ali Smith again lights a way for us through the nightmarish 'now', in a vital celebration of companionship in all its forms: A story is never an answer. A story is always a question. Here we are in extraordinary times. Is this history? Ali is the author of many works of fiction, including, most recently, Summer, Spring, Winter, Autumn, Public library and Other Stories, and How to be Both, which won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, the Goldsmiths Prize, and the Costa Novel of the Year Award.
