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)

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)

[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... The novel 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)

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

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)

A powerful story of lives marred by secrets, unfulfilled potential and the unjustness of the world... interwoven with another beautiful story of the dances people do to rise above it all (Economist)
