About this book
Zadie Smith's first novel since "On Beauty" brings 21st century London vividly to life and explores issues surrounding inequality, wealth and poverty. It's a delicate, devastating tragi-comic novel depicting the modern urban zone, deeply relevant to today's society, and will be a welcome return of this major British author, with widespread review coverage assured.
Follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan - after they've left their childhood council estate, grown up and moved on to different lives. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their city is brutal, beautiful and complicated.
