Coming soon as a BBC2 drama adaptation -- a masterful novel about London life from the bestselling, prize-winning Zadie Smith. Zadie Smith's brilliant tragi-comic NW follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan - after they've left their childhood council estate, grown up and moved on to different lives. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their city is brutal, beautiful and complicated. Yet after a chance encounter they each find that the choices they've made, the people they once were and are now, can suddenly, rapidly unravel. A portrait of modern urban life, NW is funny, sad and urgent - as brimming with vitality as the city itself.Praise for NW:'Her dialogue sings and soars; terse, packed and sassy. Smith is simply wonderful: Dickens's legitimate daughter' Boyd Tonkin, Independent'Astonishing, dazzling. Really - without exaggeration - not since Dickens has there been a better observer of London scenes. Zadie Smith is a genius. It's hard to imagine a better novel this year - or this decade' A.N. Wilson'Intensely funny, richly varied, always unexpected. A joyous, optimistic, angry masterpiece. No better English novel will be published this year' Philip Hensher, Daily Telegraph'Absolutely brilliant. So electrically authentic' TIME'Captivating. Funny, sexy, weird, full of acute social comedy, like London. She's up there with the best around' Evening Standard'Marvellous . . . crackles with reflections on race, music and migration. A lyrical fiction for our times' Spectator'Undeniably brilliant . . . rush out and buy this book' Observer

“NW by Zadie Smith”

I was wary about whether it would come up to expectations after 'White Teeth'.
If anything I enjoyed it more.

If, like me, you read to escape the monotony of every day life, this book is definitely not for you. Although it does make you realise that your own life is, by comparison, quite interesting. It is the kind of book... More
