Artful
by Ali Smith




Overview -
"A stimulating combination of literary criticism, essay, and fiction" (The New Yorker) from the incomparable Ali Smith

Artful is a celebration of literature's worth in and to the world--it is about the things art can do, the things art is made of, and the quicksilver nature of all artfulness. A magical hybrid that refuses to be tied down to either fiction or the essay form, Artful is narrated by a character who is haunted--literally--by a former lover, the writer of a series of lectures about art and literature. Ali Smith's heady powers as a novelist and short story writer harmonize with her keen perceptions as a reader and critic to form a living thing that reminds us that life and art are never separate.
