Other Stories and Other Stories is a stunning collection of short stories from Ali Smith.

Individually lucid and luminous, these formally inventive and exquisite tales resonate subtly together. In examining the distances and connections between ourselves and others, and lightly and expertly inching us closer to the bone, storytelling itself has never seemed so necessary, so moving or so joyous.

'Beautifully written and quietly unsettling' Big Issue

'Bold and sensitive. Smith's prose is a joy' Independent

'A wonderful collection; deceptively easy on one level with its whirling library of ghost story, funny story, love story, scary story, and more. Like Russian dolls, separate yet invisibly linked, they unfold from and into one another' Herald

'Smith breathes life into her imagined words with a true understanding of the craft of the short-story writer. She dances surely and lightly over the form' Guardian

'Captures quiet epiphanies of the extraordinary in the mundane' Sunday Times

'These stories fizz with life' The Times Literary Supplement

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Other Stories and other stories by Ali Smith There is a persistent prejudice that experimental literature, or really any literature that is conscious of form and plays with structure is something merely cerebral, read: cold and unemotional. Ali Smith’s collection of stories and Other Stories and other stories proves this wrong on every single of its 180 pages, almost with every single sentence even.
