Spring by Ali Smith is our Book of the Week this week at VOLUME. What unites Katherine Mansfield, Charlie Chaplin, Shakespeare, Rilke, Beethoven, Brexit, the present, the past, the north, the south, the east, the west, a man mourning lost times, a woman trapped in modern times? With an eye to the migrancy of story over time, Ali Smith tells the impossible tale of an impossible time: now.
