Autumn by Ali Smith
Sept  24, 25, 26, 2018 

From Wikipedia: 

Autumn is a 2016 novel by Scottish author Ali Smith, first published by Hamish Hamilton. It is projected to be the first of four seasonal ‘state of the nation’ works. Written rapidly after the United Kingdom's 2016 European Union membership referendum, it was widely regarded as the first 'post-Brexit novel' dealing with the issues raised by the voters' decision.  In July 2017, Autumn was longlisted for the 2017 Man Booker Prize for Fiction and in September 2017 it was announced as one of six books to make the shortlist.  Many newspapers viewed it as the most likely candidate for winning. The book was named by The New York Times as one of the 10 Best Books of 2017.
