Clair Wills on Summer

Clair Wills reviews Ali Smith's latest seasonal book, Summer, in The London Review of Books.

“These are novels with designs on us, one of them being to excoriate resurgent British nationalism and its treatment of minorities and refugees. But Smith’s achievement is to have created a set of scenarios plotted with this clear purpose in mind and yet to treat the people trapped as functionaries in contemporary Britain’s unlovely state-corporate systems with tremendous generosity.”
