Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Like no lectures you’ve ever encountered. Part ghost story, part love story, part mystery, part ode, they weave a narrative that feels more urgent, more naked than academia commonly allows. This is good. Good because exciting; it hooks us. And good because in taking this approach, Smith goes a long way toward restoring the arid subject of comp lit to its more rightful state, something vital and raw.” New York Times
“One of the marvelous things about this book is its reconciliation of the serious—both in the form of this crumbling, smelly guest and in its ardent advocacy of art—and light. Smith, whose love of words and skill at wordplay has already been made apparent in her stories and novels, performs dodge after dodge after dodge…What Smith has done with Artful is to invent a new form apart from form, to build a kind of Frankensteins monster inside the act of art.” Los Angeles Review of Books
“Contemplative and electrifying.” Publishers Weekly
