The First Person

A great collection of stories, this title came to me via Jonathan Sainsbury at Pantheon. Ali Smith is a big I knew what I was getting into. It didn't stop me from trying a few interesting concepts.

First up:

Second comp, that I illustrated. Based directly on a line from her short story, True Short Story, that states: “Franz Kafka says that a short story is a cage in search of a bird.”

and the final comp. I think this one came across as more commercially viable, which I get. The first story revolves around a mysterious box. Enough said.
