How to Be Both (Paperback)

Ali Smith


Ali Smith's How to Be Both is the winner of the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2015, Goldsmiths Prize 2014, 2014 Costa Novel Award, the Saltire Society Literary Book of the Year Award, and was nominated for the Folio Prize 2015 and shortlisted for the 2014 Man Booker Prize.

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.
