Book of the Week: Summer by Ali Smith. Smith's outstanding quartet, written 'in real time', comes to its conclusion with this eagerly anticipated and completely wonderful novel. Facing down some of the biggest issues of our time, Smith remains always playful, personable and pleasurable to read. 
"These novels, in straddling immediacy and permanence, the personal as well as the scope of a world tilting toward disaster, are the ones we might well be looking back on years from now as the defining literature of an indefinable era. And the shape the telling takes is, if not salvation, brilliance itself." —The New York Times
