Description

From the MAN BOOKER PRIZE- and WOMEN’S PRIZE-SHORTLISTED author of Swing Time, White Teeth and On Beauty – a masterful and intimate novel of modern London life

‘A triumph. Every sentence sings’ Guardian

‘Intensely funny, richly varied, always unexpected. A joyous, optimistic, angry masterpiece’ Daily Telegraph

‘Smith’s most satisfying novel. Funny, sexy, weird, full of acute social comedy. She’s up there with the best around’ Evening Standard

Zadie Smith’s brilliant tragicomic 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. Funny, poignant and vividly contemporary, NW is as brimming with vitality as the city itself.
