<p><b><i>How to be both</i> is the dazzling new novel by Ali Smith.</b></p><p> <b></b></p><p> <b>LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014</b></p><p><b> </b></p><p><b> </b>Passionate, compassionate, vitally inventive and scrupulously playful, Ali Smith's novels are like nothing else. </p><p> <i></i></p><p><i> How to be both</i> 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. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> 'Smith can make anything happen, which is why she is one of our most exciting writers today' <i>Daily Telegraph</i></p><p><i> </i></p><p><i> </i>'She's a genius, genuinely modern in the heroic, glorious sense' Alain de Botton</p><p> </p><p> 'I take my hat off to Ali Smith. Her writing lifts the soul' <i>Evening Standard</i></p><p><i> </i></p><p><i> </i></p><p> 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.</p>

An incredibly original creative foray for the novel. Far more complex than a write your own adventure. I like the influence of choice from the different starting points to the views criss crossing between the 1400s and the 2012s. A book that makes you reflect and re examine what you believe and why you formed that view. The stories were both engaging and in their moments. The history of a 1400 fresco painter on commission who believed he should have been paid more was contemporary. The grief in the young girl from today was grief no different to grief from the 1400s. How to be both is the lesson in the ned, the ned to be both is ever there.
