AUTUMN - A NOVEL

À propos

B>MAN BOOKER PRIZE FINALIST The first novel in Ali Smiths Seasonal Quartet is an unforgettable story about aging and time and love--and stories themselves./b>br> br>Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Two old friends--Daniel, a centenarian, and Elisabeth, born in 1984--look to both the future and the past as the United Kingdom stands 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.br> br>A luminous meditation on the meaning of richness and harvest and worth, Autumn is the first installment of Ali Smiths Seasonal Quartet, and it casts an eye over our own time: Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearean jeu desprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s pop art. Autumn is wide-ranging in time-scale and light-footed through histories.
