Following her astonishing Seasonal Quartet, award-winning author Ali Smith again lights a way for us through the nightmarish now with a provocative novel grounded both in the contemporary era and in the uncannily familiar era of the Black Plague.&“A woman receives an unexpected call from a former classmate asking for help deciphering a puzzling interaction, and from there, Smith spins out a broader story about loneliness, refuge and freedom." —The New York Times Book Review"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? Companion Piece stands apart from the Quartet, which remains discrete unto itself. But like Smith&’s groundbreaking series, this new novel boldly captures the spirit of the times.&“Every hello, like every voice, holds its story ready, waiting.&”
