A highly acclaimed and strikingly influential novelist, British author Zadie Smith burst on to the literary scene with her sharp and funny debut White Teeth. Reflecting her Jamaican-British heritage and written when Smith was still at university, White Teeth received a chorus of acclaim, with various reviewers comparing its author with Salman Rushdie. The novel went on to win numerous awards including the Guardian First Book Award and the Whitbread First Novel Award.
Nominated as one of Granta’s 'Best of Young British Novelists' in 2003, Smith followed White Teeth with The Autograph Man and On Beauty, which won the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2006. Her other works include Swing Time, Grand Union and The Fraud, as well as the non-fiction collections Imitations and Feel Free.
Taking inspiration from a real-life nineteenth-century imposture trial, Smith's immersive first historical novel weaves together the stories of a Scottish housekeeper with a novelist cousin, a formerly enslaved valet unexpectedly thrust into the limelight of a legal case and the missing heir to the Tichborne baronetcy.
