A richly inventive new collection of stories from Ali Smith, author of How to be both, winner of the Baileys Womens Prize and the Costa Novel Award and shortlisted for the Man Booker PrizeWhy are books so very powerful?What do the books weve read over our lives - our own personal libraries - make of us?What does the unravelling of our tradition of public libraries, so hard-won but now in jeopardy, say about us?The stories in Ali Smiths new collection are about what we do with books and what they do with us: how they travel with us; how they shock us, change us, challenge us, banish time while making us older, wiser and ageless all at once; how they remind us to pay attention to the world we make.Public libraries are places of joy, freedom, community and discovery - and right now they are under threat from funding cuts and widespread closures across the UK and further afield. With this brilliantly inventive collection, Ali Smith joins the campaign to save our public libraries and celebrate their true place in our culture and history.
