Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith

Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith

£8.99Price

Girl meets boy. It's a story as old as time. But what happens when an old story meets a brand new set of circumstances?  

Ali Smith's remix of Ovid's most joyful metamorphosis is a story about the kind of fluidity that can't be bottled and sold. It is about girls and boys, girls and girls, love and transformation, a story of puns and doubles, reversals and revelations. Funny and fresh, poetic and political, here is a tale of change for the modern world.

 

An uplifting, heart-swelling queer gem.
