Zadie Smith on Swing Time

11 november 2016
| |

One of the most talented authors of this generation comes to the John Adams Institute, November 11th, 8pm - 9.30pm at De Rode Hoed to speak about her exuberant and ambitious new novel Swing Time – published in Dutch by Prometheus Publishers. Zadie Smith’s star rose quickly with her debut novel White Teeth, which won multiple awards and proved Smith to be a wondrously talented writer who takes on big themes —faith, race, gender, history, and culture. She continues to address these themes in Swing Time – a story of two girls who dream of being dancers, spanning over twenty years and two continents. It’s also a tale about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them.

N.B. Wij bespraken Smiths vorige roman, NW. En haar essaybundel Changing My Mind.
