The joy of spring
Without any hint of hyperbole, Ali Smith is now firmly established as one of Scotland’s greatest living writers. Her seasonal novels paint a portrait of British people wrestling with division and inequality. But despite their Brexit-infused backdrop, Smith’s books brim with optimism. Even in the darkest times, Spring will come – and with it, another wonderful character. Today, Smith talks with fellow novelist Kamila Shamsie.
