Editorial Reviews

Journalist and co-founder of Salon.com Laura Miller hosts this especially compelling episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club series, featuring British literary superstar Zadie Smith, whose award-winning books include White Teeth, On Beauty, and the recently published NW, a stylistically experimental novel about a chance encounter between four London residents, and the disparate lives they live.
This audio event features a reading of an excerpt from On Beauty, after which Miller and Smith engage in a stimulating intellectual discussion about writing, and particularly about Smith’s aesthetic sensibilities, and the work she produces. An audience question-and-answer session caps off this entrancing audio event.

Publisher's Summary

Author Zadie Smith discusses her much-anticipated third novel, On Beauty. Set on both sides of the Atlantic, the novel follows the chain of events when the son of a liberal British academic family falls in love with the daughter of an American right-wing icon. A brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, and the intersection of the personal and political, the book is also very funny indeed. Interviewed by Laura Miller of salon.com.
