Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson

 

Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo da Vinci’s astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson “deftly reveals an intimate Leonardo” (San Francisco Chronicle) in a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo’s genius was based on skills we can improve upon in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy.

Winter by All Smith

 
Winter. Bleak. Frosty wind, earth as iron, water as stone, so the old song goes. In Ali Smith's Winter, life-force matches up to the toughest of the seasons. In this second novel in her seasonal cycle and follow-up to her sensational Autumn, Smith's shapeshifting novel casts a warm, wise, merry and uncompromising eye over a post-truth era in a story rooted in history and memory.
