Publisher's Summary

Fusing Keatsian mists and mellow fruitfulness with the vitality, the immediacy and the colour hit of Pop Art - via a bit of skullduggery - Autumn is a witty excavation of the present by the past.

Autumn is a take on popular culture and a meditation in a world growing ever more bordered: what constitutes richness and worth?

Autumn is the first instalment in Seasonal: four stand-alone stories, separate yet interconnected and cyclical, exploring what time is and how we experience it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Highly recommended. Intelligent. Funny. Fierce. My first Ali Smith, have moved straight on to Winter. Can't wait.

What did you like best about this story?

It's unpredictability, a 'love affair' like no other.

What about Melody Grove’s performance did you like?

Loved Melody Grove's performance. I hope she will narrate the entire quartet.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
