In The First Person and Other Stories, Ali Smith continues to stretch the limits of the short story form. Her experiments don't always work. But even when they don't, they're thought-provoking, and when they do, they're dazzling. "Writ," a story which centres on a conversation between the adult narrator and her fourteen-year-old self, is one of the best and I suspect that over time it will rank among my all-time favourites.
