Review:

Dizzyingly good and so clever that it makes you want to dance (New Statesman)

A delight. A masterpiece. Magical. (Sunday Times)

I take my hat off to Ali Smith. Her writing lifts the soul (Evening Standard)

Exciting, full of joy and wryly funny... [Ali Smith is] one of the most inventive writers alive (Emerald Street)

A remarkably easy and immensely enjoyable read... Ali Smith is a one-off. Her imagination and originality make her one of the most exciting novelists of her generation. Both George and Francesco touch the heart and linger in the mind long after the final page. (Daily Express)

Smith is the brightest spark in a recent explosion of female novelists taking dizzying risks with form and voice . . . most contemporary male authors feel Jurassic by comparison. (Metro)

Rich, funny and moving. Smith's writing really catches fire (Financial Times)

Dazzling (Independent)

This warm, funny book deserves to be read at least one-and-a-half times (Honor Clerk Spectator)

Radical, dazzling . . . Those writers making doomy predictions about the death of the novel should read Smith's re-imagined novel/s, and take note of the life it contains (Independent)
