Waterstones Says

A groundbreaking novel of a vibrant multicultural London across three generations, Smith’s blistering debut is a glorious, rambling epic that tackles big, contentious themes with a lightness of touch and freewheeling self-assurance. 

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards 30 from 30 Award 2020

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.
