NW by Zadie SmithNovember's Book Club selection is NW by New York Times-bestselling author Zadie Smith. A tragicomic novel that follows the lives of four locals in northwest London, the divergent lives of these characters run parallel to the city, which becomes a character itself. Known for her cinematographic writing styles, Zadie Smith focuses on the flaws of the characters and the setting, framing them not-so neatly with fractured language and varying shifts in the narrator.

Join us as we discuss what Anne Enright, Man Booker prize-winning author of The Gathering, describes as "a book in which you never know how things will come together or what will happen next."

Copies are available for check-out.
