A 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist - One of The New York Times Book Review's 10 Best Books of 2012 - One of TIME's Top 10 Fiction Books of 2012 - One of The Wall Street Journal's Best 10 Fiction Books of 2012 - A New York Times and Washington Post Notable Book of 2012

"[NW] is that rare thing, a book that is radical and passionate and real." --Anne Enright, The New York Times Book Review

"A triumph . . . As Smith threads together her characters' inner and outer worlds, every sentence sings." --The Guardian

"A powerful portrait of class and identity in multicultural London." --Entertainment Weekly

Set in northwest London, Zadie Smith's brilliant tragicomic novel follows four locals--Leah, Natalie, Felix, and Nathan--as they try to make adult lives outside of Caldwell, the council estate of their childhood. In private houses and public parks, at work and at play, these Londoners inhabit 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--familiar to city-dwellers everywhere--NW is a quietly devastating novel of encounters, mercurial and vital, like the city itself.
