A Hay Festival and The Poole VOTE 100 BOOKS for Women Selection ‘Believe the hype’ The Times ‘The almost preposterous talent was clear from the first pages’ Julian Barnes, Guardian 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. ‘Funny, clever … and a rollicking good read’ Independent ‘Astonishingly assured, funny and serious… I was delighted’ Salman Rushdie ‘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 ‘Relentlessly funny … idiosyncratic, and deeply felt’ Guardian


Praise for White Teeth

“Zadie Smith’s fizzing first novel is about how we all got here—from the Caribbean, from the Indian subcontinent, from thirteenth place in a long-ago Olympic bicycle race—and about what “here” turned out to be. It’s an astonishingly assured debut, funny and serious, and the voice has real writerly idiosyncrasy. I was delighted by
White Teeth and often impressed. It has . . . bite.”
—Salman Rushdie

“A rich, ambitious, and often hilarious delight.”

The Independent

“This is a strikingly clever and funny book with a passion for ideas, for language, and for the rich tragicomedy of life. . . . [Smith’s] characters always ring true; it is her ebullient, simple prose and her generous understanding of human nature that make Zadie Smith’s novel outstanding. It is not only great fun to read, but full of hope.”
