8. How To Be Both - Ali Smith

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £23.50  - Currently in stock

How to be both is a novel all about artís versatility. Borrowing from paintingís fresco technique to make an original literary double-take, itís a fast-moving genre-bending conversation between forms, times, truths and fictions. Thereís a renaissance artist of the 1460s. Thereís 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 lifeís givens get given a second chance.
