LaurieLee, November 16, 2013 (view all comments by LaurieLee)
'On Beauty', Zadie Smith's 21st Century version of 'Howards End', is a deep & rewarding novel of the differences & attractions between 2 families, one African-American, the other British-Trinidadian, of warring art experts and the complicated relations that grow between their children & wives. More than an homage to the original masterpiece on British families of differing social classes, threads from the E. M. Forster classic like the ramifications of British Imperialism & the question of who will inherit what's truly important are woven into a modern story full of bright colors which range across the black experience, the true value of art & the limitations of the American dream.
