Slack Pussy Session 10: Girl Meets Boy (2007) by Ali Smith

May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Session 10: Wednesday 30 May 2018 

Girl Meets Boy (2007) by Ali Smith. Chosen by Olivia Laing. 

This is what Laing says:

‘Girl Meets Boy is a dazzling love story about corporate defiance and gender instability. A radical retelling of the myth of Iphis, it’s like a modern day Orlando, if Orlando was Scottish and worked in a dismal marketing department selling bottled water. I love the way Smith dissolves boundaries and dispels borders: “She had a girl’s toughness. She had a boy’s gentleness. She was as meaty as a girl. She was as graceful as a boy.”‘

We will be reading the entire novel (176 pages). The book should be easy to hold of. Do get in touch if you’d like to borrow our copy: slackpuss.rg@gmail.com
