Language. Having read other works by Ali Smith, I was prepared for the pleasure of falling under the spell of her wordplay in a collection titled, Public Library and Other Stories. Smith’s skill with words can become dazzling, and at the same time make some readers feel unmoored. Words, books and libraries are all on display in this collection, and those readers who love our language are those most likely to enjoy reading this book.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
