Publisher Description

Zadie Smith's White Teeth is a classic international bestseller and an unforgettable portrait of London, available as a Penguin Essential for the first time.

One of the most talked about fictional debuts ever, White Teeth is a funny, generous, big-hearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. Dealing - among many other things - with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse, and the tricky way the past has of coming back and biting you on the ankle, it is a life-affirming, riotous must-read of a book.

Review

Relentlessly funny ... idiosyncratic, and deeply felt Guardian An astonishingly assured debut, funny and serious ... I was delighted -- Salman Rushdie Announces the debut of a preternaturally gifted new writer ... street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time The New York Times An impressive debut, not only for its vitality and verve, but mainly for the sheer audacity of its scope and vision ... an epic tale ... swooping, funny ... it has ambition, wit and is unafraid -- Meera Syal Express Do believe the hype, buy into it, curl up with it, savour every sentence, then turn around and re-read The Times Funny, clever ... and a rollicking good read Independent
