This review is from: The Autograph Man (Paperback)
disappointing. I like zadie smith, loved white teeth and enjoy her essays and lit crit stuff. This novel doesn't work for me; the jokes don't come off, the celebrity as signifier motif never really came clear and the characters seemed unrealistic, selfish and most importantly, unbelievable. I never really bought into the characters, which is the first hurdle for fiction.
I'll persevere with Zadie and assume this one's a blip.
