A dazzling collection of short fiction Zadie Smith has established herself as one of the most iconic, critically respected, and popular writers of her generation. In her first short story collection, she combines her power of observation and her inimitable voice to mine the fraught and complex experience of life in the modern world. Interleaving ten completely new and unpublished stories with some of her best-loved pieces from The New Yorker and elsewhere, Smith presents a dizzyingly rich and varied collection of fiction. Moving exhilaratingly across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, Grand Union is a sharply alert and prescient collection about time and place, identity and rebirth, the persistent legacies that haunt our present selves and the uncanny futures that rush up to meet us. Nothing is off limits, and everything--when captured by Smith's brilliant gaze--feels fresh and relevant. Perfectly paced and utterly original, Grand Union highlights the wonders Zadie Smith can do.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Zadie SmithPublisher: Penguin PressPublished: 10/08/2019ISBN: 9780525558996Pages: 256Weight: 1.00lbsSize: 9.60h x 6.30w x 0.90dReview Citations: Library Journal Prepub Alert 05/01/2019 pg. 60Kirkus Reviews 08/01/2019 pg. 38Publishers Weekly 08/12/2019Kirkus Reviews Fall Preview 08/15/2019 pg. 18Booklist 09/15/2019 pg. 20BookPage 10/01/2019Shelf Awareness 10/15/2019
