Ali Smith with Val McDermid: Hello! image

In Ali Smith’s Seasonal Quartet, readers were treated to something rarely seen since Dickens: novels engaging with events as they unfolded – including Brexit, migration and climate change.
With Companion Piece, Smith takes another bracing dive into the waters of British society, finding humour, empathy and clarity in the hue and cry all around us.
This literary giant discusses her work with fellow Scottish favourite, Val McDermid.
