Surpasses even White Teeth. Biting but humorous commentary on modern family life; and above all on academia. Zadie Smith acknowledges her debt to Simon Schama's Rembrandt's Eyes. An extraordinarily satisfying ending -- an epiphany that bears reflection.

Three years ago I discovered Zadie Smith almost by mistake, and I couldn't be happier for the chance discovery. There is much that's amazing about her writing - - Her characters are well defined and extremely interesting
- Her dialogue makes you feel like you've known these characters all your life
- Her story line pulls you in from the start, and keeps you there throughout
- And quite simply, her writing is amazing
