Cutting the hype of "Hotel World", "Free Love and other stories" - i think which was the first book of Ali Smith is a winner all the way. Abstraction is the highlight of the stories presented in this collection and they are all so thought provoking.
"Text for the Day" is one of my favourites - which tells about a woman named Melissa and her undying love for books and the printed word. Then there is "Free Love" - tracing the sexual awakening of a young girl on a trip to Amsterdam. "To the Cinema" - as the title suggests is all about love for the movies juxtaposing the dreariness of living.
This is not the end of it thankfully....there are more gems to chose from - there's "The Unthinkable happens to people everyday" about a famous tv host trying to rediscover life and its simple pleasures then journeying to "The World with Love" - which is rich in its prose.
What I loved about this collection was that the stories are not the usual run-of-the-mill short stories - they are here to stay and say something fascinating. They are worth a read all the time and a thousand times more!!
