How to be Both

by Ali Smith
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)

How to be Both by Ali Smith How to be both is the dazzling new novel by Ali Smith. It is longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014.
 
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.
