'Do believe the hype, buy into it, curl up with it, savour every sentence, then turn around and reread' The The Times
One of the most talked about fictional d ts of recent years, White Teeth is a funny, generous, bighearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. Dealing- among many other things- with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse, and the tricky way the past has of coming back and biting you on the ankle, it is a life- affirming, riotous must-read of a book.

'Relentlessly funny ... idiosyncratic, and deeply felt' Guardian
'Hilarious ... Zadie Smith's cracked it bigstyle. Don't be scared of a future with someone this talented in it' i-D
'An astonishingly assured d t, funny and serious ... I was delighted' Salman Rushdie
'Extremely funny ... witty and fresh' Literary Review
'Quirky, sassy and wise' The New York Times
