White Teeth

Author(s): Zadie Smith

Location(s): London

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1970s-90s

This is a hilarious and poignant story of two North London families, headed by Archie and by Archie’s best friend and Samas Iqbal, a Muslim originally from Bengal. An unlikely friendship they served together in the Second World War. Archie chooses an unexpected marriage partner, older and toothless Clara, producing a daughter, Irie, and Samad marries Alsana in an arranged union, producing two sons. This novel really gets to grips with the fundamental themes of modern Britain in this engrossing and superbly expansive first novel.
