Merely to be a gushing Ali Smith fangirly I thought that I would begin this review by saying that it is really cool to open a library book written by someone so prolific and to see local author scrawled on the front page If you had not guessed from this I adore Smith s uirky writing and creative stories and she is certainly one of my favourite authors Before I begin each one of Smith s short story collections I know that I will very much enjoy every single tale which has been included within its pages often for very different reasons As I very much and rather predictably loved or very much enjoyed every story in The Whole Story and Other Stories I thought that I would jot down a few thoughts about each story and the reasons as to why I liked them so much The Universal Story I loved the conversational stream of consciousness style the way in which Smith describes how one can adore books and the promise of treasures in secondhand bookshops one man s admiration for The Great Gatsby and the collection of copies of the novel Gothic the personification of personality traits the growth of the story s protagonist Being uick the use of the reader as a character of sorts the use of two different first person narrators the fact that the couple who feature as the protagonists are nameless May an original idea I have read this story several times before and still find its beauty striking Paradise the use of very long but perfectly constructed sentences the imagery which Smith builds Erosive the sheer number of characters and the way in which they were introduced so seamlessly The Book Club the structure which cleverly told both a present day story and a backstory Believe Me the skill and tightness of the conversation between the protagonists Scottish Love Songs the very contemporary style of the prose The Shortlist Season thoughtful and urgent The Start of Things the dual perspective of the same eventPlease if you have not done so before go and pick up one of Ali Smith s books Whether you read a novel a short story collection or a work of non fiction she is a novelist who is well worth discovering
