Synopsis

Zadie Smith's White Teeth is a classic international bestseller and an unforgettable portrait of London One of the most talked about fictional debuts ever, 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. 'Funny, clever ...and a rollicking good read' Independent 'An astonishingly assured debut, funny and serious ...I was delighted' Salman Rushdie 'The almost preposterous talent was clear from the first pages' Julian Barnes, Guardian 'Quirky, sassy and wise ...a big, splashy, populous production reminiscent of books by Dickens and Salman Rushdie ...demonstrates both an instinctive storytelling talent and a fully fashioned voice that's street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time' New York Times 'Smith writes like an old hand, and, sometimes, like a dream' New Yorker 'Outstanding ...A strikingly clever and funny book with a passion for ideas, for language and for the rich tragic-comedy of life' Sunday Telegraph 'Do believe the hype' The Times 'Relentlessly funny .

..idiosyncratic, and deeply felt' Guardian

Zadie Smith’s debut novel is full of humour and pathos, will enrich the days you spend reading it, and make you sorry to see it end. Usually, I do not condone free reading in a bookstore-don’t crack the spine!-but read the first 6 pages or so. If, at the end of those pages you haven’t chuckled at least once or have the slightest curiosity about what happens next, that’s fine. You can walk away. Otherwise, you’ll have done yourself a favour. - Cindy.
