The First Person and Other Stories (Paperback)

Ali Smith


Distinguished by Smith's trademark ability to unearth flashes of truth and depth in the everyday, "The First Person and Other Stories" sparkles with warmth and humanity. In one story, a middle-aged woman conducts a poignant conversation with her fourteen-year-old self. In another, an innocent supermarket shopper finds in her trolley a foul-mouthed, insulting, yet beautiful child. And in a third story that challenges the boundaries between fiction and reality, the narrator, 'Ali', drinks tea, phones a friend, and muses on the surprising similarities between a short story and a nymph...Fans of Ali Smith will be delighted, amused and moved by these stories from a writer at the very top of her game.
