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 * A wonderfully risky project...an ambitious, multi-layered creation...an energising and uplifting story * The Daily Telegraph * A moving exploration of the intricacies of the imagination, a sly teasing-out of a host of big ideas and small revelations, all hovering around a timeless quandary: how to observe, how to be * The New York Times * I wonder: How does she manage to so wonderfully weave in and out of time, to layer time, while creating something that feels like it was written this morning after she read today's newspaper? * PBS News Hour * Publisher's description. Autumn 2016: the UK is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. The seasons roll round as ever. From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting, light-footed, time-travelling novel. This is a story about right now, this minute; about ageing and time and love and stories themselves. Here comes Autumn. * Penguin * 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 book I'd like to receive for Christmas: Ali Smith's Autumn. * Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train * Fantastic writing, big ideas and generosity of spirit * Spectator * [Ali Smith] is Scotland's Nobel laureate-in-waiting - and I can't wait for her new book * Sebastian Barry, Observer * Humour, grace, solace...A light-footed meditation on mortality, mutability and how to keep your head in troubled times * Guardian, Best Fiction 2016 * Autumn is a beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities * Guardian * [Ali Smith] is simply incapable of writing a dull paragraph * New Statesman * Bold and brilliant, dealing with the body blow of Brexit to offer us something rare: hope. * Jackie Kay, poet * 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. * Olivia Laing, Observer * Ever-inventive...Autumn is the first serious Brexit novel...In a country apparently divided against itself, a writer such as Smith is more valuable than a whole parliament of politicians. * Financial Times, Books of the Year *
