Longlisted for the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction
Imagine you give a dinner party and a friend of a friend brings a stranger to your house as his guest. He seems pleasant enough. Imagine that this stranger goes upstairs halfway through the dinner party and locks himself in one of your bedrooms and won't come out. Imagine you can't move him for days, weeks, months. If ever. Ali Smith's dazzling new novel is a funny, moving book about time, memory, thought, presence, quietness in a noisy time, and the importance of hearing ourselves think.

Intricate, exuberant, humane
A beautiful piece
Smith's novel is an absolutely mesmerising piece of work. Clever character developments work to let the story line slowly become clear - an incredible experience!
There were no bits I did not like!
This is simply a fantastic audiobook. The style of the novel lends itself very well to an audio interpretation. The performance was absolutely fantastic. This is certainly a book I will listen to over and over again - it is an absolutely beautiful work of fiction.
