On Beauty

eBook
Winner of the 2006 Orange Prize for fiction, another bestselling masterwork from the celebrated author of White Teeth
Having hit bestseller lists from the New York Times to the San Francisco Chronicle, this wise, hilarious novel reminds us why Zadie Smith has rocketed to literary stardom. On Beauty is the story of an interracial family living in the university town of Wellington, Massachusetts, whose misadventures in the culture wars-on both sides of the Atlantic-serve to skewer everything from family life to political correctness to the combustive collision between the personal and the political. Full of dead-on wit and relentlessly funny, this tour de force confirms Zadie Smith's reputation as a major literary talent.

Zadie Smith's newest novel, Swing Time, was published by Penguin Press in November 2016.
