From the astonishingly talented writer of The Accidental and Hotel World comes Ali Smith's brilliant retelling of Ovid's gender-bending myth of Iphis and Ianthe, as seen through the eyes of two Scottish sisters. Girl Meets Boy is about girls and boys, girls and girls, love and transformation, and the absurdity of consumerism, as well as a story of reversals and revelations that is as sharply witty as it is lyrical. Funny, fresh, poetic, and political, Girl Meets Boy is a myth of metamorphosis for a world made in Madison Avenue's image, and the funniest addition to the Myths series from Canongate since Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad.

Review:
"A compact, rollicking novel . . . Ovid's gender-bending metamorphosis story gets a Madison Avenue-style makeover."

"Girl Meets Boy pulls you in and doesn't let you go. Never afraid of big ideas, morality or politics, Smith's retelling is bold and brilliant."

"Cheerful, sexy, disorienting ... Smith's spare and sharp lyricism . . . are handled with glee . . . and Smith's cadences, which read like classical drama, carry the novel along beautifully."
Book Description:
A dazzling piece of storytelling from one of Britain's most brilliant writers
