Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer. Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever . . . 'A beautiful, poignant symphony of memories, dreams and transient realities' Guardian 'Bravura, brilliant and unsettling . . . leaving you marvelling' Financial Times 'Fantastic' Spectator 'A terrific writer. There is an awful lot to lift the soul, not least Smith's extraordinary playful use of language' Daily Mail 'Undoubtedly Smith at her best. Puckish, yet elegant; angry, but comforting' The Times 'Bold and brilliant' Observer 'Smith straddles the elegiac and the celebratory through this glorious novel' Scotsman
