October book: The Accidental by Ali Smith

August 5, 2006

Diana’s choice for October is The Accidental by Ali Smith.  Here’s a description:

“British novelist and Booker Prize nominee Smith (Hotel World, 2001) renders acrobatic prose that seems in a perpetual state of acceleration. At the opening of her mesmerizing new novel, a barefoot, thirtysomething stranger named Amber abandons her broken-down car and arrives at the doorstep of Eve and Michael Smart, who are summering in Norfolk, England, with Eve’s children, 12-year-old Astrid and 17-year-old Magnus.”
