A STUNNING RETELLING BY THE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR ALI SMITH 'Joyful' JEANETTE WINTERSON 'Pulls you in and doesn't let you go ...bold and brilliant' JACKIE KAY 'A glorious wide-awake dream of a book ...By the time I finished, my heart was beating and tears stood in my eyes, even as I had the biggest smile written all over my face' KIRSTY GUNN 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 re-mix 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.
