Zadie Smith
(Penguin)
Zadie Smith’s new book is playful, psychogeographically rich, sometimes messy, dark, and has a wicked stiletto of an ending. Most of all, its subtleties hold up under the mulling over after you’ve finished reading it. A smart look at the complexities of escaping the traps of class, gender and color, one that reaches far beyond the simple fairy tale of rising up through education.
