Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith
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.

“A glorious wide-awake dream of a book … My heart was beating and tears stood in my eyes, even as I had the biggest smile written all over my face.” - Kirsty Gunn, Observer
“Poetic … Smith remembers what the ancients knew: that musical words drum a beat through to understanding.” - The Times
