Zadie Smith In Conversation with Pico Iyer
“One of this generation’s most vital literary voices.” – Jeffrey Eugenedes, author of Middlesex “Smith has a knack for unearthing the deeper truths that lie beneath common experience.” The New York Times British novelist, essayist and short story writer Zadie Smith is known for her unique perspective on contemporary culture, superb dialogue and emotionally rich stories. Smith’s reputation as one of the most important voices of her generation was established with her award-winning debut novel, White Teeth. Smith’s newest novel Swing Time, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, is “a multilayered tour-de-force… [that] burnishes her place in the literary firmament” (Los Angeles Times).
