Girl Meets Boy

Girl Meets Boy

Ali Smith
Select Preferred Format

Girl meets boy. It’s a story as old as time. But what happens when an old story meets a brand new set of circumstances?

Ali Smith’s remix of Ovid’s most joyful myth is a story about the kind of fluidity that can’t be bottled and sold. It’s 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, here is a tale of change for the modern world.
