    Zadie Smith's White Teeth is a classic international best seller and an unforgettable portrait of London. One of the most talked about fictional debuts ever, White Teeth is a funny, generous, big-hearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. Dealing - among many other things - with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse and the tricky way the past has of coming back and biting you on the ankle, it is a life-affirming, riotous must-listen.

    Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and true identity, how they shape us and how we can survive them. Moving from Northwest London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time. Two brown girls dream of being dancers - but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe or makes a person truly free.

    Zadie Smith's deeply funny, subversive and splendidly entertaining The Autograph Man is a whirlwind tour of celebrity and our fame-obsessed times. Following one Alex-Li Tandem - a 20-something, Chinese Jewish autograph dealer turned on by sex, drugs and organised religion - it takes in London and New York, love and death, fathers and sons, as Alex tries to discover how a piece of paper can bring him closer to his heart's desire. Exposing our misconceptions about our idols - about ourselves - Zadie Smith delivers a brilliant, unforgettable tale about who we are and what we really want to be.

    Author Zadie Smith discusses her much-anticipated third novel, On Beauty. Set on both sides of the Atlantic, the novel follows the chain of events when the son of a liberal British academic family falls in love with the daughter of an American right-wing icon. A brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, and the intersection of the personal and political, the book is also very funny indeed. Interviewed by Laura Miller of salon.com.

    Shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, 2003.
    Alex-Li Tandem sells autographs. He hunts for them, collects them, sells them, and occasionally fakes them, all to give the people a little piece of Fame. But what does Alex want? Only the return of his father, the reinstatement of some kind of benevolent God figure, the end of religion, something for his headache, three different girls, infinite grace, and the rare autograph of a Forties movie actress. With fries.
