About the book: 
"Other Stories and Other Stories" is a stunning collection of short stories from Ali Smith, the award-winning Scottish author of "Hotel World" and "The Accidental". "Beautifully written and quietly unsettling". ("Big Issue"). "Bold and sensitive. Smith's prose is a joy". ("Independent"). "A wonderful collection; deceptively easy on one level with its whirling library of ghost story, funny story, love story, scary story, and more. Like Russian dolls, separate yet invisibly linked, they unfold from and into one another". ("Herald"). "Smith breathes life into her imagined words with a true understanding of the craft of the short-story writer. She dances surely and lightly over the form". ("Guardian"). "Captures quiet epiphanies of the extraordinary in the mundane". ("Sunday Times"). "These stories fizz with life". ("The Times Literary Supplement"). The award-winning Ali Smith is one of the most talented modern British writers; her novels, "The Accidental", "Hotel World" and "There but for the", and her collections of short stories, "The First Person and Other Stories" and "The Whole Story and Other Stories", are available in Penguin paperback.
