Staff Reviews

What do we let define us? This complex question lies at the heart of of the Belsey family's relationship with the neighboring Kipps household. Featuring an extremely unique and diverse cast of characters, Smith explores the intersection of education, wealth, race, and more in the formation of personality. This book has stunned me every time I've read it.

— Christopher


Set on both sides of the Atlantic, Zadie Smith's third novel is a brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, intersections of the personal and political, and an honest look at people's deceptions. It is also, as you might expect, very funny indeed.
