In the author’s words, this novel is ""an attempt at a comic family epic of little England into which an explosion of ethnic colour is injected"". It tells the story of three families, one indian, one white, one mixed, in North London and Oxford from World War II to now.

Set in a 1990's NW London community, the lives of three families play out over three generations weaving family interactions and emotions between themselves, the other families and characters within their community. This novel reflects the diversity, history, humour, humanity and hope from a recognizable NW London of twenty years ago. Zadie Smith's eye for detail in this confident, witty and ground-breaking debut novel ensures you want to read more from her. Wonderful
