    I d love to chat all day about the seasons but I ve work to do, he said.When I first read this book, I, along with many others, missed a key connection between it and the first volume of the quartet, Autumn Reading Winter again now after just reading Autumn for the third time I firstly find it hard to believe we all missed that connection and secondly wa

    conversation continued from Autumn You re reading the book about the leaves again It s not the same book Same cover image, different season.So no leaves floating about in this one No leaves But lots of floaters.Like eye floaters Those and others.You do like your enigmas Plastic floating across the oceans is no allusive enigma it s very real.Oh right, serious floaters I w

    Winter is the second book I ve read by Ali Smith Public Library and Other Stories was the first one Both times I had to recalibrate my brain according to the following rules in order to enjoy the reading experience Slow down the book is short but you can t speed through it Give in to the lack of linearity allow yourself to float and flit in time Open up to the impressionistic fee

    Quite enjoyed this though for me it lacked the urgency, inspiration and poetry of Autumn At times it read like an inferior version of the same novel Perhaps though my bad for reading this immediately after finishing Autumn I ve got a feeling a six month time lapse would have helped me enjoy it Centrepiece of the novel is a Christmas lunch I certainly identified with the presentation of Christmas as a time

    OK I surrender Upgraded to 5 stars as Ali Smith has made complete fools of us all, myself included.Everyone spent so long looking for micro links between the two novels, no one at least not in any review on GR as at 9 November 2017 had spotted other than as the merest teasing hint the glaring and very explicit link between the two books the Daniel Sophie tryst in Paris that is in the first pages of Autumn and the l

    Martin Amis said that there seems to be a requisite period of time before one can write about historical events, especially catastrophes He was referring to 9 11 and his first publication about it The Second Plane which did not appear until 2008 Ali Smith, however, in Winter, seems to be writing about Brexit and T may his name remain anathema as it happens Barely a month could have passed between the time Lord Soames

    4.5 Stars God was dead to begin with And romance was dead Chivalry was dead Poetry, the novel, painting, they were all dead, and art was dead Theatre and cinema were both dead Literature was dead The book was dead Love was dead.Death was dead.A great many things were dead.Some, though, weren t, or weren t dead yet Imagine being haunted by the ghosts of all these dead things Imagine being haunted by the ghost of a flower No, imag

    Ali Smith once again smitten me with the second installment of her Seasonal Quartet Winter, and left me in awe It will be among my top Christmas book recommendations going forward Well, I didn t get to read it until the U.S release after the new year The book was all about Christmas visiting family, guests, lights, snow, loads of food, holly, Christmas tree, but none of these reminded me of a traditional picture perfect white Christmas Art w
