A story is never an answer. A story is always a question. Here we are in extraordinary times. Is this history? What happens when we cease to trust governments, the media, each other?What have we lost? What stays with us? What does it take to unlock our future?Following her astonishing quartet of Seasonal novels, Ali Smith again lights a way for us through the nightmarish now, in a vital celebration of companionship in all its forms.
For me, selling books comes from a love of reading, a love of sharing stories. Books and reading will always be at the centre of Olive’s book club, but it is so much more than that. I want to create a book loving community, to share queer love, to join together to absolutely hammer down on the disgusting racist, transphobic and ableist narrative the Tory government and the press are persistently peddling. Owning a book shop is something I’ve always dreamed of and I’m using this online shop as a platform for elevate this dream and hopefully open a bricks and mortar space in Newcastle Upon Tyne very soon!
