Ali Smith

Thu 6 Feb 2020

Characteristically experimental, Ali Smith’s seasonal quartet – a series of novels starting in autumn and proceeding chronologically to the soon-to-be released Summer – is a true document of our times. Written in as close to real time as possible, it spans Brexit, the detention of migrants, Twitter rants and, inevitably, love.

Having read at Brighton Festival from the first in the quartet, Autumn, it is only fitting that Ali Smith (Brighton Festival Guest Director 2015) returns to discuss the entire quartet. Come and be part of a conversation, chaired by author and translator, Daniel Hahn, exploring what has been lost, what was gained, what is true and what remains.
