The Book Show #1300 - Zadie Smith

Jun 18, 2013

Zadie Smith's fourth novel, NW, is a return of sorts to the voices and the northwest London landscape of her 2000 debut, White Teeth. Her tragi-comic new novel follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan – as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their London is a complicated place.
