A failed romance between the evangelical son of the messy, liberal Belseys - Howard is Anglo-WASP and Kiki African-American - the gorgeous daughter of the staid, conservative,Afro-Caribbean Kipps - leads to a soulful, transatlantic understanding between the families' matriarchs, even as their husbands amass material for the cultural wars at a fictional Massachusetts university. 446p.

    An ambitious, exuberant new novel moving from North-West London to West Africa, from the multi-award-winning author of White Teeth and On Beauty Two brown girls dream of being dancers--but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either... Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from North-West London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.
