    Book Description

    A keen, controlled novel about dance and blackness steps onto a stage of cultural land mines.

    Book Description

    The follow-up to Smith’s smashing debut success (White Teeth, 2000, film rights recently sold to Miramax) is an uneasy mix of Sunset Boulevard, J.P. Donleavy’s The Ginger Man, and James McCourt’s fey romantic comedies about dementedly self-absorbed beautiful people.

    The arresting, promising prologue describes a d ... more

    by: Zadie Smith

    Publisher: pPenguin Press

    Book Description

    Rarely does a book that seems to promise so little deliver so much. Even the subtitle, Occasional Essays, of Zadie Smith’s nonfiction collection Changing My Mind, carries a whiff of modest ambitions. This isn’t, it seems to say, nearly as substantial as Smith’s novels.
