NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER From the bestselling author of Autumn and Winter, as
well as the Baileys Prize-winning How to be both, comes the next
installment in the remarkable, once-in-a-generation masterpiece, the
Seasonal Quartet 'Her best yet, a dazzling hymn to hope, uniting the past
and present with a chorus of voices . . . [Ali Smith] is lighting us a path
out of the nightmarish now' - Observer What unites Katherine Mansfield,
Charlie Chaplin, Shakespeare, Rilke, Beethoven, Brexit, the present, the
past, the north, the south, the east, the west, a man mourning lost times,
a woman trapped in modern times? Spring. The great connective. With an eye
to the migrancy of story over time, and riffing on Pericles, one of
Shakespeare's most resistant and rollicking works, Ali Smith tells the
impossible tale of an impossible time. In a time of walls and lockdown
Smith opens the door. The time we're living in is changing nature. Will it
change the nature of story? Hope springs eternal.
