Zadie Smith FRSL born on 25 October year 1975 in Sadie is an English novelist, essayist, and short story writer. Ella’s debut novel White Teeth (2000) became an instant bestseller and won several awards. As of September 2010 she is a professor in the creative writing department at New York University.

Sadie Smith was born in Willesden on October 25, 1975 to a Jamaican mother, Yvonne Bailey, and an English father, Harvey Smith, 30 years older than his wife. At the age of 14 she changed her name from Sadie de Ella to Zadie.

Smith’s mother grew up in Jamaica and immigrated to England in 1969. Smith’s parents got divorced when she was teenager. She has a half-sister, a half-brother, and two younger brothers (one is rapper and comedian Doc Brown, the other is rapper Luc Skyz). As a child, Smith loved tap dancing and in her teens she considered a career in musical theater. While in college, Smith made money as a jazz singer and wanted to be a journalist. Despite earlier ambitions, literature became her main interest.

Smith attended local government schools, Malorees Junior School and Hampstead Comprehensive School, then King’s College, Cambridge, where she studied English literature. In an interview with The Guardian in 2000, Smith corrected a newspaper claim that she left Cambridge for the first time. “Actually, I got a third in my first part,” she said. She graduated with upper second class honors. While in college, Smith unsuccessfully auditioned for Cambridge Footlights.

At Cambridge, Smith published a series of short stories in a collection of new student work entitled The Mays Anthology. They caught the eye of a publisher who offered him a contract to write her first novel. Smith decided to approach a literary agent and was hired by AP Watt. Smith returned in 2001 to guest edit the anthology.

Smith met Nick Laird at Cambridge University. They were married in 2004 at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge. Smith dedicated “On Beauty” to “my dear Laird”. She also uses her pass name on White Teeth: “And ‘all the handsome men, all the rides like your man Nicky Laird, they’re all dead.”

The couple lived in Rome, Italy from November 2006 to 2007 and lived in New York City and Queen’s Park, London for about 10 years before moving to Kilburn, London in 2020. They have two children.

Smith describes herself as “irreligious” and was not raised in any religion, although she retains a “curiosity” about the role religion plays in the lives of others. In an essay examining humanist and existentialist views of death and dying, Smith characterizes her worldview as that of a “sentimental humanist.”

Set in the North West London, Zadie Smith’s brilliant tragicomic novel follows the four locals – Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan – as they try to find adulthood outside of the Caldwell, their child welfare state. In public homes and parks, at work and at play, these Londoners inhabit a complicated place as beautiful as it is brutal, where the thoroughfares hide the alleys and driving down the high street can sometimes lead you to dead end. Representing the modern urban area familiar to city dwellers everywhere, NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, erratic and vital as the city itself.

This book has received more one-star reviews on Amazon than anything else I’ve bought, but the four- and five-star reviews were more thoughtful, so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed.

The plot seems to act as a setting for the novel. It’s not linear, of course, or maybe even that relevant. The characters, on the other hand, are very well developed and the observations of society, class and race are astute. The writing style is unorthodox, which makes for an interesting read overall, but it does feel lazy in places. Certain paragraphs remind me of the shortcuts I took when writing assignments in school, where I hoped my lack of full paragraphs would translate into creativity. I did some research for the author’s opinion on why she chose her style(s) of hers and found this on a blog from New York:

That is not very satisfactory.

There were several other elements of the novel that I initially found unsatisfying, though the more I think about them, the more sense they make. For example, I was frustrated with the Shar and Leah story and wondered why it was included. However, after thinking about it for a few days, I have come to the conclusion that without Shar Leah, we would not fully understand it. Such is the case with many of the other seemingly tangential characters, and the sometimes vast space devoted to each of their stories is not wasted.

This novel gets better for me the longer it lasts. I think it might end up being a favorite, but I would advise potential readers, especially fans of White Teeth and On Beauty, to adjust their expectations before delving into it.
