About the Author

Ali Smith CBE FRSL is a Scottish writer. She was born to working-class parents, raised in a council house in Inverness and now lives in Cambridge.

She studied at the University of Aberdeen and then at Newnham College, Cambridge, for a PhD that she never finished. She worked as a lecturer at University of Strathclyde until she fell ill with CFS/ME. Following this she became a full-time writer and now writes for The Guardian, The Scotsman, and the Times Literary Supplement. Openly gay, she lives in Cambridge with her partner filmmaker Sarah Wood.

In 2007 she was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. In 2009, she donated the short story Last (previously published in the Manchester Review Online) to Oxfams Ox-Tales project, four collections of UK stories written by 38 authors. Her story was published in the Fire collection.
