Zadie Smith says about her novel: "My largest structural debt should be obvious to any E.M. Forster fan; suffice it to say he gave me a classy old frame, which I covered with new material as best I could." This won the Orange Prize for fiction, having hit bestseller lists along with her other novels White Teeth and Swing Time, this "wise, hilarious novel reminds us why Zadie Smith has rocketed to literary stardom." From the publisher: "On Beauty is the story of an interracial family living in a university town, whose misadventures in the culture wars-on both sides of the Atlantic-serve to skewer everything from family life to political correctness to the combustive collision between the personal and the political. Full of dead-on wit and relentlessly funny, this tour de force confirms Zadie Smith's reputation as a major literary talent."
