“Ali Smith has delivered another exuberant cascade of words” Molly Guinness, Spectator
“Ali Smith, with humour and typical linguistic versatility, explores issues of homophobia, corporate and social responsibility and the sheer vertiginous feeling of falling in love…A delicate tale with a solid message of conscientious objection at its heart” Catherine Taylor, Independent on Sunday
Ali Smith’s re-mix of Ovid’s most joyful metamorphosis is a story about the kind of fluidity that can’t be bottled and sold.
It is about girls and boys, girls and girls, love and transformation, a story of puns and doubles, reversals and revelations.
Funny and fresh, poetic and political, Girl meets boy is a myth of metamorphosis for the modern world.
