Grand Union

3.28 (6,803 ratings by Goodreads)

Paperback | English

By (author): Zadie Smith

A treasure trove of outstanding stories from ''''the best writer of our generation'''' (Gary Shteyngart) - the perfect gift for the Zadie Smith fan in your life

''''She''''s already one of our best novelists and essayists, this reminds us that her short stories are right up there too'''' Observer

''''Sexy and hilarious. There is no moment in Grand Union when we are not entertained, or doubt that we are in the company of one of our best contemporary writers'''' Guardian

''''Brilliant. Another slam dunk. Street life, patois, music, food, clothes, hair: Smith has her finger on the pulse of life and the utter weirdness of whatever has just become normal. This is a book of and for the times, sobering in its clarity but bracingly witty and clever'''' Evening Standard

''''Smith''''s dialogue crackles with mordant wit. This dazzling collection of stories will leave you with plenty to think about'''' Independent


Interleaving ten completely new and unpublished stories with some of her best-loved pieces from the New Yorker and elsewhere, Zadie Smith presents a dizzyingly rich and varied collection of fiction.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.
