The Accidental

Ali Smith

Or a woman trying to make a career? Or even a man failing to make a career? Who knows? Read it for yourself, and see what you think.

Extract

A streetlit leaf falls off a tree. She sees it hit the ground. She looks at the strip of sky above the houses again. There are more than 1,000,000 asteroids, and those are only the ones that scientists and astronomers know about. There could easily be loads more. Id est.
