Girl Meets Boy

Author: Ali Smith

"Girl meets boy. It’s a story as old as time. But what happens when an old story meets a brand new set of circumstances? Ali Smith’s remix of Ovid’s most joyful myth is a story about the kind of fluidity that can’t be bottled and sold. It’s about girls and boys, girls and girls, love and transformation—a story of puns and doubles, reversals and revelations. Funny and fresh, poetic and political, here is a tale of change for the modern world. "

Book Reviews

"‘An ecstatic, exhilarating helter-skelter ride of a story’—Financial Times.

‘A glorious wide-awake dream of a book’—Observer.

‘[This book] delights because it refuses to stop at a single metamorphosis; despite its compactness, its stories multiply and rebound exuberantly, its echoes calling to one another across the pages’—Times Literary Supplement.

‘Smith’s style encompasses both the lyricism of poetry and the energy of a well-told joke, and she has a keen appreciation for the magic of the everyday kind’—Daily Mail "
