Product Description & Reviews
Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal! A dazzling collection of short fictionZadie Smith has established herself as one of the most iconic, critically respected, and popular writers of her generation. In her first short story collection, she combines her power of observation and her inimitable voice to mine the fraught and complex experience of life in the modern world. Interleaving eleven completely new and unpublished stories with some of her best-loved pieces from The New Yorker and elsewhere, Smith presents a dizzyingly rich and varied collection of fiction. Moving exhilaratingly across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, Grand Union is a sharply alert and prescient collection about time and place, identity and rebirth, the persistent legacies that haunt our present selves and the uncanny futures that rush up to meet us. Nothing is off limits, and everything—when captured by Smith’s brilliant gaze—feels fresh and relevant. Perfectly paced and utterly original, Grand Union highlights the wonders Zadie Smith can do. An Amazon Best Book of October 2019: Although she has had a nearly twenty-year career, this is Zadie Smith’s first short story collection. One of the things readers will notice about it is the impressive scope of Smith’s writing. There is a broad and diverse cast of characters in these stories. There is urban realism, speculative fiction, and many degrees between. There is playfulness and precision. Of the nineteen stories in Grand Union, eleven are new; the majority of the others appeared in The New Yorker. And despite the range, Zadie Smith’s voice—the intelligence and insight, the control of language—are always evident. This is a satisfying, memorable collection by a talented author teeming with ideas. --Chris Schluep, Amazon Book Review
