Product Description

Satisfying and thoughtfulPublisher's description. Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is Zadie Smith's most ambitious novel yet: a story about friendship and music and true identity, how they shape us and how we can survive them. Moving from north-west London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.Endlessly satisfying... [Zadie Smith] has never written better. Pitch-perfect, masterful and sophisticatedZadie Smith is the best writer of our generation, and Swing Time is her best book to date. As the title promises, the novel swings and pulsates with life, filled with emotion, excited by intellect and haunted by sadness. What a miracle that literature can still do things other forms of art cannot. What a miracle that Zadie Smith is among us, writing.Clever, funny, confident and kind. Her gift for language is a pleasure and her character shines through[Smith] packs more intelligence, humour and sheer energy into any given scene than anyone else of her generationZadie Smith's finest novel. Extraordinary, virtuosic... [It] does what only literature can and what only great literature will: forces us to assess the very vocabulary with which we speak of human experience Zadie Smith at her finest... [An] unflinching portrait of friendship... [A] triumphIngenious, inspired... Zadie Smith's new novel is very good indeedShrewd observation and sly satire, profundity and genuine purpose, as well as some of the most heart-stoppingly lyrical writing of her careerA powerful story of lives marred by secrets, unfulfilled potential, the unjustness of the world...and the dances people do to rise above it allA sweeping meditation on race and identity... [Smith's] most ambitious work yetA nuanced, richly rewarding tale

'Smith's finest. Extraordinary, truly marvellous' Observer


A dazzlingly exuberant novel moving from north west London to West Africa, from the critically acclaimed author of White Teeth, On Beauty and Grand Union

Two brown girls dream of being dancers - but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, black bodies and black music, what it means to belong, what it means to be free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten either.

Bursting with energy, rhythm and movement, Swing Time is Zadie Smith's most ambitious novel yet. It is a story about music and identity, race and class, those who follow the dance and those who lead it . . .

'Superb' Financial Times 'Breathtaking' TLS 'Pitch-perfect' Daily Telegraph

'There is still no better chronicler of the modern British family than Zadie Smith' Telegraph
