LONDON

Don't miss a chance to read and discuss one of the most talked about fictional d?buts of recent years. White Teeth is a funny, generous, big-hearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. A portrait of modern London painted through the stories of friendship, love and war in three families of three cultures 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.

White Teeth won the Guardian First Book Award, the Whitbread Prize for a first novel in 2000, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction 2000, the WH Smith Book Award for New Talent and both the Commonwealth Writers First Book Award and Overall Commonwealth Writers Prize. White Teeth has been translated into over twenty languages and was adapted for Channel 4 television for broadcast in autumn 2002. In 2003 Zadie Smith was nominated by Granta magazine as one of 20 'Best of Young British Novelists' and she is currently a Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University.
