WINNER OF THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2015 WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2014 SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014 WINNER OF THE 2014 COSTA NOVEL AWARD WINNER OF THE SALTIRE SOCIETY LITERARY BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2014 NOMINATED FOR THE FOLIO PRIZE 2015 'Brims with palpable joy' Daily Telegraph 'She's a genius, genuinely modern in the heroic, glorious sense' Alain de Botton 'I take my hat off to Ali Smith. Her writing lifts the soul' Evening Standard How to be both 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. Passionate, compassionate, vitally inventive and scrupulously playful, Ali Smith's novels are like nothing else.
Shortlisted for the British Book Award – Fiction Book of the Year and the Orwell Prize for Political Writing The second novel in the Man Booker Prize–nominated author’s Seasonal cycle; the much-anticipated follow-up to Autumn (a New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Financial Times, The Guardian, Southern Living, and Kirkus Reviews best book of the year). Winter. Bleak. Frosty wind, earth as iron, water as stone, so the old song goes. And now Art’s mother is seeing things. Come to think of it, Art’s seeing things himself. When four people, strangers and family, converge on a fifteen-bedroom house in Cornwall for Christmas, will there be enough room for everyone? Winter. It makes things visible. Ali Smith’s shapeshifting Winter casts a warm, wise, merry and uncompromising eye over a post-truth era in a story rooted in history and memory and with a taproot deep in the evergreens, art and love.

"O MORRO DOS VENTOS UIVANTES" possui características ímpares diante de seus contemporâneos: enquanto outros se baseavam em ações complexas, geralmente tortuosas, sua estrutura dramática é resultado do choque de vontades, através de uma rica mistura de romantismo e realismo, transbordando de paixão, turbulência e misticismo. A obra conta a história da paixão entre Heathcliff e Catherine na fazenda chamada Morro dos Ventos Uivantes. Amigos de infância, eles são separados pelo destino, mas a união do casal é mais forte do que qualquer tormenta - um amor proibido que deixará rastros de ira e vingança. "O MORRO DOS VENTOS UIVANTES" foi publicado em 1847 através do pseudônimo "Ellis Bell". Hoje considerado um dos grandes clássicos da literatura universal, caracteriza-se como uma grande história de amor amaldiçoado e de vingança, e visto como a mais intensa história de amor já escrita na língua inglesa, tendo recebido fortes críticas quando de sua publicação no século XIX.
