SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER


'In a country apparently divided against itself, a writer such as Smith is more valuable than a whole parliament of politicians' Financial Times

'Undoubtedly Smith at her best. Puckish, yet elegant; angry, but comforting' The Times

'A beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities... The first post-Brexit novel' Guardian

A breathtakingly inventive new novel from the Man Booker-shortlisted and Baileys Prize-winning author of How to be both

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 . . .

'Terrific, extraordinary, playful... There is an awful lot to lift the soul' Daily Mail

'Bold and brilliant' Observer


I love Ali Smith's writing, and I've been keeping Autumn for an end-of-book holiday treat (Val McDermid, 'The Observer')

In a country apparently divided against itself, a writer such as Smith is more valuable than a whole parliament of politicians (Financial Times)

Bold and brilliant, dealing with the body blow of Brexit to offer us something rare: hope (Jackie Kay)

Humour, grace, solace...A light-footed meditation on mortality, mutability and how to keep your head in troubled times (The Guardian)

Transcendental writing about art, death and all the dimensions of love. It's not so much 'reading between the lines' as being blinded by the light between the lines - in a good way (Deborah Levy)

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 (The Observer)

Autumn is a beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities (The Guardian)

Experimental, thematically complex, associative, time-juggling, powered by a crazed and energetic curiosity (Sunday Times)

Pure literary magic (Mail on Sunday)

Puckish, yet elegant; angry, but comforting. Long may she Remain that way (The Times)
