White Teeth

Zadie Smith
Zadie Smith’s dazzling debut is street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical. It is set in London and is rich of sights and smells of the world that England has inherited.

This book is unique for the evocation of a place through the rhythm of language - as used in conversation, or in suggesting how certain characters are thinking. It is very London - specifically parts of London that I know, where I have lived and met friends. It holds true for a wide perspective of time, from the eighties to the present.
