Other Stories and Other Stories
is a stunning collection of short stories from Ali Smith.
Individually lucid and luminous, these formally inventive and exquisite tales resonate subtly together. In examining the distances and connections between ourselves and others, and lightly and expertly inching us closer to the bone, storytelling itself has never seemed so necessary, so moving or so joyous.
’Beautifully written and quietly unsettling’ Big Issue
’Bold and sensitive. Smith’s prose is a joy’ Independent
’A wonderful collection; deceptively easy on one level with its whirling library of ghost story, funny story, love story, scary story, and more. Like Russian dolls, separate yet invisibly linked, they unfold from and into one another’ Herald
’Smith breathes life into her imagined words with a true understanding of the craft of the short-story writer. She dances surely and lightly over the form’ Guardian
’Captures quiet epiphanies of the extraordinary in the mundane’ Sunday Times
’These stories fizz with life’ The Times Literary Supplement
