White Teeth Summary

White Teeth by Zadie Smith

From the MAN BOOKER PRIZE- and WOMEN'S PRIZE-SHORTLISTED author of Swing Time, On Beauty and Grand Union

'BELIEVE THE HYPE' The Times

'The almost preposterous talent was clear from the first pages' Julian Barnes, Guardian

'Street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time' New York Times

'Outstanding' Sunday Telegraph

The international bestseller and modern classic of multicultural Britain - an unforgettable portrait of London

One of the most talked about debut novels of all time, 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-read of a book.

White Teeth Reviews

Funny, clever ... and a rollicking good read * Independent *
Do believe the hype, buy into it, curl up with it, savour every sentence, then turn around and re-read * The Times *
An impressive debut, not only for its vitality and verve, but mainly for the sheer audacity of its scope and vision ... an epic tale ... swooping, funny ... it has ambition, wit and is unafraid -- Meera Syal * Express *
Announces the debut of a preternaturally gifted new writer ... street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time * The New York Times *
An astonishingly assured debut, funny and serious ... I was delighted -- Salman Rushdie
Relentlessly funny ... idiosyncratic, and deeply felt * Guardian *
