LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

'Smith's finest. Extraordinary, truly marvellous' Observer

'Superb' Financial Times 'Breathtaking' TLS 'Pitch-perfect' Daily Telegraph

'There is still no better chronicler of the modern British family than Zadie Smith' Telegraph

SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS 2017

A dazzlingly exuberant novel moving from north west London to West Africa, from the critically acclaimed author of White Teeth, On Beauty and Grand Union

Two brown girls dream of being dancers - but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, black bodies and black music, what it means to belong, what it means to be free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten either.

Bursting with energy, rhythm and movement, Swing Time is Zadie Smith's most ambitious novel yet. It is a story about music and identity, race and class, those who follow the dance and those who lead it . . .

Review:

Satisfying and thoughtful (Daily Telegraph)

Publisher's description. Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is Zadie Smith's most ambitious novel yet: a story about friendship and music and true identity, how they shape us and how we can survive them. Moving from north-west London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time. (Penguin)

Endlessly satisfying... [Zadie Smith] has never written better. Pitch-perfect, masterful and sophisticated (Telegraph)

Zadie Smith is the best writer of our generation, and Swing Time is her best book to date. As the title promises, the novel swings and pulsates with life, filled with emotion, excited by intellect and haunted by sadness. What a miracle that literature can still do things other forms of art cannot. What a miracle that Zadie Smith is among us, writing. (Gary Shteyngart)

Clever, funny, confident and kind. Her gift for language is a pleasure and her character shines through (Evening Standard)

[Smith] packs more intelligence, humour and sheer energy into any given scene than anyone else of her generation (Sunday Telegraph)

Zadie Smith's finest novel. Extraordinary, virtuosic... [It] does what only literature can and what only great literature will: forces us to assess the very vocabulary with which we speak of human experience (Observer)

Zadie Smith at her finest... [An] unflinching portrait of friendship... [A] triumph (Guardian)

Ingenious, inspired... Zadie Smith's new novel is very good indeed (Sunday Times)

Shrewd observation and sly satire, profundity and genuine purpose, as well as some of the most heart-stoppingly lyrical writing of her career (Scotland on Sunday)

About the Author:
