Description

"Think of [Companion Piece] as a B-side to the seasonal quartet--more up-to-the-minute observations of our confusing world, more playful language to get lost in." o ONE OF THE MOST HOTLY ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2022--The National UK, The Guardian UK, iNews, Financial Times, Daily Mail UK, The Irish Times, Evening Standard, New Statesman, The Scotsman, Waterstones, Book Bar
 

A story is never an answer. A story is always a question.

Here we are in extraordinary times.  
Is this history? 
 
What happens when we cease to trust governments, the media, each other?
What have we lost?  
What stays with us? 
What does it take to unlock our future?
 
Following her astonishing quartet of Seasonal novels, Ali Smith again lights a way for us through the nightmarish now, in a vital celebration of companionship in all its forms.
 
Every hello, like every voice, holds its story ready, waiting.
