Publisher's Summary

From the Man Booker-short-listed and Baileys Women's Prize-winning author of How to be both, the highly anticipated second novel in the acclaimed Seasonal series, which both continues the arc of the series and is also an extraordinary stand-alone listen.

In Winter, life force matches up to the toughest of the seasons. In this second novel in her acclaimed Seasonal cycle, the follow-up to Ali Smith's sensational Autumn, Smith's shape-shifting quartet of novels casts a merry eye over a bleak post-truth era with a story rooted in history, memory, and warmth, its taproot deep in the evergreens: art, love, laughter. It's the season that teaches us survival.

Stellar and magical!

Not enough stars! I loved this. It's like experiencing one of Shakespeare's comedies through quantum lenses. Yeah, I know: That makes no sense at all. But it captures the joy of the book -- the delightful characters, the bending and twisting of time, the playfully transcendent aura that hovers over everything, the humorous authorial interjections, the assumption of disguises, the comic resolution... I loved "Autumn" equally as much and I am ready to follow Ms. Smith anywhere. A special shout-out to narrator Melody Grove whose performance is nothing less than miraculous. What a splendid pairing of author and reader!
