Growth. The third installment in Ali Smith’s quartet on the seasons is titled, Spring. This was the installment that I wanted to read first, but Smith surprised me with choosing Autumn as the opener. Spring is a season of surprises and of sprouting. We come to see the new growth of what we had planted and what arrived by unknown means. Smith shows the evidence of what we have planted in society: detention centers and the demonization of immigrants. Surrender to Smith’s take on contemporary life and dream with her on the pages of this finely written novel. This is us. This is now. I can’t wait for the final installment.
Rating: Five-star (I like it)
