Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2012) This is the story of a city, or more specifically the northwest corner of a city, written by the Orange Prize–winning author of On Beauty and White Teeth. Here you'll find guests and hosts, those with power and those with no home at all, living cheek by jowl in London yet in separate worlds. And then there are the visitations—the rare times a stranger crosses a threshold without permission or warning, disrupting the whole system—like the April afternoon a woman came to Leah Hanwell's door, seeking help, disturbing the peace, forcing Leah out of her isolation. This tragicomic novel by Zadie Smith (herself a denizen of northwest London) follows Leah, Natalie, Felix, and Nathan as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood.

"Endlessly fascinating.... The impression of Smith's casual brilliance is what constantly surprises, the way she tosses off insights about parenting and work that you've felt in some nebulous way but never been able to articulate."—Washington Post

"Smith's fiction has never been this deadly, direct, or economical.... Where gifts are concerned, Smith is generous with hers; she writes, one feels, with our pleasure in mind.... NW is Zadie Smith's riskiest, meanest, most political and deeply felt book—but it all feels so effortless. She dazzles."—Bookforum
