He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER 'Her best book yet, a dazzling hymn to hope, uniting the past and the present with a chorus of voices' Observer 'A story of our times... Savour it, because there is just one instalment left' Evening Standard 'Spring weaves a story around the most pressing issues of our time... Smith tells stories in a voice you can't help but listen to' The Times From the bestselling author of Autumn and Winter, as well as the Baileys Prize-winning How to be both, comes the next installment in the remarkable, once-in-a-generation masterpiece, the Seasonal Quartet 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? Spring. The great connective. With an eye to the migrancy of story over time, and riffing on Pericles, one of Shakespeare's most resistant and rollicking works, Ali Smith tells the impossible tale of an impossible time. In a time of walls and lockdown Smith opens the door. The time we're living in is changing nature. Will it change the nature of story? Hope springs eternal. Praise for the Seasonal Quartet: 'Transcendental writing about art, death, political lies, and all the dimensions of love. It's a case not so much of reading between the lines as of being blinded by the light between the lines - in a good way' Deborah Levy on Autumn 'The novel of the year is obviously Autumn, which managed the miracle of making at least a kind of sense out of post-Brexit Britain' Olivia Laing, Observer on Autumn 'Ali Smith is flat-out brilliant, and she's on fire these days... Combining brainy playfulness with depth, topicality with timelessness, and complexity with accessibility while delivering an impassioned defence of human decency and art' NPR on Winter 'Rank[s] among the most original, consoling and inspiring of the artistic responses to 'this mad and bitter mess' of the present' Financial Times on Winter 'A novel of great ferocity, tenderness and generosity of spirit that you feel Dickens would have recognised... Smith is engaged in an extended process of mythologizing the present states of Britain... Luminously beautiful' Observer on Winter

'She is one of America's greatest writers' Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less ______________________________________ 'In the first few months after Charlie died, I began hearing from her much more frequently' _______________________________________ Helen Clapp is a physics professor. She doesn't believe in pseudo-science, or time travel and especially not in ghosts. So when she gets a missed call from Charlie, her closest friend from university with whom she hasn't spoken in over a year, Helen thinks there must be some mistake. Because Charlie died two days ago. Then when her young son, Jack, claims to have seen Charlie in their house just the other day, Helen begins to have doubts. Through the grief of the husband and daughter she left behind, Helen is drawn into the orbit of Charlie's world, slotting in the missing pieces of her friend's past. And, as she delves into the web of their shared history, Helen finds herself entangled in the forgotten threads of her own life. Lost and Wanted is a searing novel from one of America's most exciting writers about the sacred knottiness of female friendship, the forces which fuse us together and those which drive us apart. _______________________________________ 'There aren't many novels that bring to mind both Middlemarch and Bridget Jones's Diary - but Lost and Wanted is one of them' The Times 'Tender, sharply observed and marvellously rich' Daily Mail 'Dazzling' Mail on Sunday 'Brilliant' Financial Times 'Freudenberger [has a] gravity-defying gift' O, the Oprah Magazine 'Beautiful' New York Times 'A real powerhouse of a novel' Ben Fountain 'Tender, engaging' Dava Sobel 'You'll be beguiled' Jonathan Lethem 'Deeply involving, substantial, suspenseful, and psychologically lush' Booklist '[A] stunning portrayal of grief' Publishers' Weekly

There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from College, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared. Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny. No one would believe they'd be friends; fewer still would tolerate it.

Her writing lifts the soul' Evening Standard How to be both is a novel all about art's versatility. Borrowing from painting's fresco technique to make an original literary double-take, it's a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths and fictions. There's a renaissance artist of the 1460s. There's the child of a child of the 1960s. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real - and all life's givens get given a second chance. Passionate, compassionate, vitally inventive and scrupulously playful, Ali Smith's novels are like nothing else.

'AN ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE' John Boyne 'One of the most compulsive psychological mysteries since Donna Tartt's The Secret History . . . impossible to put down' The Times 'Terrific - terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent' Stephen King' From one of the greatest writers of the century comes a landmark novel of huge ambition. ________________________________________ WHAT DO WE HIDE INSIDE OURSELVES? One night changes everything for Toby. He's always led a charmed life - until a brutal attack leaves him damaged and traumatised, unsure even of the person he used to be. He seeks refuge at his family's ancestral home, the Ivy House, filled with memories of wild-strawberry summers and teenage parties with his cousins. But not long after Toby's arrival, a discovery is made: a skull, tucked neatly inside the old wych elm in the garden. As detectives begin to close in, Toby is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about his family, his past, and himself. A spellbinding standalone from a literary writer who turns the crime genre inside out, The Wych Elm asks what we become, and what we're capable of, if we no longer know who we are. ________________________________________ 'To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she's simply this: A TRULY GREAT WRITER' Gillian Flynn 'French offers a masterclass in unreliability . . . dissolving the boundaries between genre and literary fiction' Sunday Times 'The finest crime writer around right now' Mail on Sunday 'A brilliant examination of male privilege and family secrets' Guardian 'Gripping and suspenseful, with more twists than a rollercoaster, The Wych Elm is a MAGNIFICENT NOVEL' John Boyne 'HER BEST BOOK. Really, it is not a crime novel: as ever, Tana's scope is so much broader than that' Gillian McAllister 'Another one of her rich psychological thrillers that will work its way under your skin' Lucy Mangan, Stylist 'Tana French's best and most intricately nuanced novel yet. . . Get ready for the whiplash brought on by its final twists and turns' The New York Times 'I DROP EVERYTHING for a new Tana French book - feign illness, cancel plans and miss deadlines - and it's always worth it. This mystery about family, memory and the cracks in both will haunt you for a long, long time' Erin Kelly 'The Trespasser contains the most tense and serpentine interrogation scenes outside of John le Carre' Mark Lawson, Guardian

The Mystery of Mercy Close
I employ this thing called The Shovel List. A shovel...? No. A Shovel List. It's more of a conceptual thing. It's a list of all the people and things I hate so much that I want to hit them in the face with a shovel. Helen Walsh doesn't believe in fear - it's just a thing invented by men to get all the money and good jobs - and yet she's sinking. Her work as a Private Investigator has dried up, her flat has been repossessed and now some old demons have resurfaced. Not least in the form of her charming but dodgy ex-boyfriend Jay Parker, who shows up with a missing persons case - the target: Wayne Diffney, the 'Wacky One' from boyband Laddz.. Playing by her own rules, Helen is drawn into a dark and glamorous world, where her worst enemy is her own head and where increasingly the only person she feels connected to is Wayne, a man she's never even met. Utterly compelling, moving and very very funny, The Mystery of Mercy Close is unlike any novel you've ever read and Helen Walsh - courageous, vulnerable and wasp-tongued - is the perfect heroine for our times.
