Summary
Visitation -- Guest -- Host -- Crossing. "Four Londoners--Leah, Natalie, Felix, and Nathan--try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood.

Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  New York Times Ten Best Books of 2012 #147;A boldly Joycean appropriation, fortunately not so difficult of entry as its great model#133; Like Zadie Smith's much-acclaimed predecessor White Teeth (2000), NW is an urban epic." --Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Review of Books This is the story of a city. The northwest corner of a city. Here you'll find guests and hosts, those with power and those without it, people who live somewhere special and others who live nowhere at all.nbsp; And many people in between. Every city is like this. Cheek-by-jowl living. Separate worlds. And then there are the visitations: the rare times a stranger crosses a threshold without permission or warning, causing a disruption in the whole system. Like the April afternoon a woman came to Leah Hanwell's door, seeking help, disturbing the peace, forcing Leah out of her isolation#133; Zadie Smith's brilliant tragi-comic new novel follows four Londoners - Leah, Natalie, Felix and Nathan #150; as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. From private houses to public parks, at work and at play, their London is a complicated place, as beautiful as it is brutal, where the thoroughfares hide the back alleys and taking the high road can sometimes lead you to a dead end. Depicting the modern urban zone #150; familiar to town-dwellers everywhere #150; Zadie Smith's NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, mercurial and vital, like the city itself.
