There's Amy and there's Ash. There's ice and there's fire. There's England and there's Scotland. Ali Smith evokes the twin spirits of time and place in an extraordinarily powerful first novel which teases out the connections between people, the attractions, the ghostly repercussions. By turns funny, haunting and disconcertingly moving, LIKE soars across hidden borders between cultures, countries, families, friends and lovers. Subtle and complex, it confounds expectations about fiction and truths. A seductive story of what it means to be alive at the edge of the twentieth century: here is a story of what it's like.

Review:

This endearing first novel (ELLE)

Beautifully written in precise, poetic prose that successfully evokes the love of like for like (OBSERVER)

I have been looking forward to seeing Ali Smith's novel since reading FREE LOVE and I have not been disappointed. I've thoroughly enjoyed the book, I love Ali Smith's prose - clear and lucid and at the same time full of little quirks and subtleties that make hers an individual voice. Not only was the novel beautifully written but it was fascinating reading (Kate Atkinson)

This impressive debut novel... is full of subtleties and surprises. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Book Description:

From one of Britain's most impressive young fiction writers comes an extraordinary and haunting novel - A seductive story of what it means to be alive at the edge of the 20th century: here is a story of what it's like.
