Description - Artful by Ali Smith

Both heartfelt fiction concerning a character haunted by a dead lover, and dazzling essay on literature and art, Artful is Ali Smith's extraordinary exploration of life, love and writing. Winner of the Foyles/Bristol Festival of Ideas Prize 2013 'Smart, allusive, informal, playful, audacious. It is totally seductive.' Independent on Sunday 'Brilliant and moving.' Evening Standard, Book of the Year 'Astounding, uncanny . . . a powerful and unprecedented work.' Lydia Davis 'Audacious, acrobatic prose that somehow also manages to be heartbreaking.' Financial Times 'Imagine a boozy, free-associating dinner party with (among many others) the surrealists, Katherine Mansfield, W. G. Sebald, Lee Miller, Shakespeare, Forster, Colette, Pasternak, Jackie Kay and Freud . . .A wonderful, deeply original book.' Julie Myerson, Observer 'If you're interested in writing and literature this is a treasure.' Daily Express
