9780141025209: How to be both

How to be both is the dazzling new novel by Ali Smith.

WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2014

SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014

WINNER OF THE 2014 COSTA NOVEL AWARD

WINNER OF THE SALTIRE SOCIETY LITERARY BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2014

NOMINATED FOR THE FOLIO PRIZE 2015

Passionate, compassionate, vitally inventive and scrupulously playful, Ali Smith's novels are like nothing else.

How to be both is a novel all about art's versatility. Borrowing from painting's fresco technique to make an original literary double-take, it's a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths and fictions. There's a renaissance artist of the 1460s. There's the child of a child of the 1960s. Two tales of love and injustice twist into a singular yarn where time gets timeless, structural gets playful, knowing gets mysterious, fictional gets real - and all life's givens get given a second chance.

'Smith can make anything happen, which is why she is one of our most exciting writers today' Daily Telegraph

'She's a genius, genuinely modern in the heroic, glorious sense' Alain de Botton

'I take my hat off to Ali Smith. Her writing lifts the soul' Evening Standard

Ali Smith was born in Inverness in 1962 and lives in Cambridge. She is the author of Artful, There but for the, Free Love, Like, Hotel World, Other Stories and Other Stories, The Whole Story and Other Stories, The Accidental, Girl Meets Boy and The First Person and Other Stories.

Recensione:

Radical, dazzling . . . Those writers making doomy predictions about the death of the novel should read Smith's re-imagined novel/s, and take note of the life it contains ( Independent)

A delight. A masterpiece. Magical. ( Sunday Times)

Smith's fervent, vital, incantatory prose is entirely her own . . . How to be both reads as if she has summoned words from some region of the unconscious and released them in a trance (Joanna Kavenna Prospect)

Dealing with grief, obsession, sexuality and the versatility of art itself, Smith has created a stunning work that is as rewarding as it is challenging ( The List)

Dazzling ( Independent)

Rich, funny and moving. Smith's writing really catches fire ( Financial Times)

This warm, funny, subtle, layered, intelligent book deserves to be read at least one-and-a-half times (Honor Clerk Spectator)

Utterly contemporary and vividly historical (Holly Williams The Independent)

Vital ( Prospect)

One of the most inventive writers alive and when she starts to have fun with language, and even the idea of what a book should be, the result is exciting, full of joy and wryly funny ( Emerald Street)

Ali Smith is a one-off. Her imagination and originality make her one of the most exciting novelists of her generation and for such a profound book this is a remarkably easy and immensely enjoyable read. Both George and Francesco touch the heart and their thoughts and ideas linger on in the mind long after the final page. ( Daily Express)

Smith is the brightest spark in a recent explosion of female novelists taking dizzying risks with form and voice . . . most contemporary male authors feel Jurassic by comparison. ( Metro)

Smith is dazzling in her daring. Her inventive power pulls you through, gasping, to the final page ( Observer)

Ms. Smith's writing is inventive and delighted. She cannot help being exuberant ( New York Times)

One of the things she does so well, and that is particularly evident in 'How to Be Both,' is the way she can create an extremely sophisticated, complex, multileveled novel that reads beautifully (Erica Wagner)

A marvellous exploration of what it means to look, then look again. Spiralling and twisting stories suggest the ways in which we can transcend walls and barriers - not only between people but between emotions, art forms and historical periods. It is a jeu d'esprit about a girl coming of age and coming to terms with her mother's death, a ghosting of a Renaissance fresco painter in a 21st-century frame and an exhortation to do the twist. (Sarah Churchwell New Statesman Books of the Year 2014)

A revelation. It blasts the doors open for the novel form and in a Woolf-like way makes all things possible. I imagine it will be one of those rare books that changes the way writers write novels (Jackie Kay Observer)

Ali Smith's novels soar higher every time and How to be both doesn't disappoint (Julie Myerson Observer)

Brilliant . No one combines experimentalism and soulfulness like Ali Smith (Craig Taylor Observer)

One of the most intelligent, inventive, downright impressive writers working anywhere in the world today. In Ali Smith we have a writer whose dazzling sophistication will surely be celebrated, studied and argues over hundreds of years after we're gone (Nick Barley The Scotsman)

Ali Smith is a master of language. Vigorous, vivid writing that is Ali Smith incarnate (Alice Thompson Herald)

I was utterly transported by Ali Smith's How to Be Both, a novel built from two stories that speak at - and through - each other across six centuries. Exquisitely drawn, poignant and deeply clever, it is a meditation on the material of art in all senses. I'm about to read it for the fourth time (Helen Macdonald Irish Times)

Ingeniously conceived, gloriously inventive ( NPR)

Dizzyingly ambitious . . . endlessly artful, creating work that feels infinite in its scope and intimate at the same time. [A] swirling panoramic ( Atlantic)

Brilliant . . . the sort of death-defying storytelling acrobatics that don't seem entirely possible ( Washington Post)

Having read this now twice, in both directions so to speak, I've decided - and I do not write this flippantly - that Ali Smith is a genius (Susan McCallum LA Review of Books)

Approaches the world as only a novel can. The book moves not so much in a straight line as in a twisting helix pattern . . . delivers the heat of life and the return of beauty in the face of loss (Kenneth Miller Everyday Ebook)

A unique conversation between past and present ( Milwaukee Journal)

Wildly inventive . . . lyrical, fresh ( Bustle Magazine)
