The Embassy of Cambodia by Zadie Smith.
Our featured Fiction book this November is a beautifully produced extended story by the wonderful Zadie Smith. Set in her native Willesden, The Embassy of Cambodia is about a woman named Fatou, from Ivory Coast, who is working as a maid for a Pakistani family in north-west London. She becomes fascinated by the Cambodian Embassy, which, somewhat incongruously, occupies a suburban villa nearby.
