Staff Reviews


Part contemporary ghost story, part academic treatise, Artful sparkles with allusion and crackles with wit and brilliance. The narrator, an arborist, is visited by her dead lover, a writer, academic and author of a series of lectures on art and literature. A compilation of the Weidenfeld lectures on European comparative literature given by Smith at St. Anne's College, Oxford in February, 2012, Artful is a set of discursive stories, a commentary on love, loss and connection - to put it briefly - by a dazzling wordsmith. What Ali Smith does with language will inspire you to explore philosophy, poetry and literature with renewed exuberance. — Amy Palmer

Artful by Ali Smith is a creative work of Literary criticism dressed eloquently and rendered as fiction. The premise is a widow reclaiming her space within her head as well as her home is haunted by the passive aggressive ghost of her scholarly husband; resulting in marvelous diatribes and dialogues of nature, art and literature. — Maeve Noonan
