On Beauty and Being Wrong

Loving Zadie Smith right now. I really liked White Teeth but this was so touching, so poignant it brought me to tears. She weaves so much truth and beauty all about and together into a thick, heaping mass of humanity. The breakdown of relationships is heartbreaking and yet, something in the reader is somehow rebuilt. She gives us so much to contemplate: underlying politics of class and race, making the macro micro and vice versa.  Awaiting the moment when i pick up the next Zadie Smith novel.
