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 read. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Winter pays frequent homage to A Christmas Carol…[Smith] spins a fine story…Winter is a stunning meditation on a complex, emotional moment in history." Time
“Wordplay, grim humor, and the uncanny (including a disembodied head that never speaks) are all thrown into the mix, and Smith has an enormously expansive vision, processing news items and our broader cultural moment.” New York Times Book Review
“The foursome’s interchanges and recollections are at once absurd and profound, and—thanks to narrator Melody Grove—as slowly but surely illuminating as the sun after the winter solstice…Grove’s challenge is to convey every nuance from the page to the ear. She does so admirably. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A sprightly, digressive, intriguing fandango on life and time.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
