    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.

    A stellar exploration of one of the cornerstones of fiction-writing: character. Twenty-five or so outstanding writers have been asked by Zadie Smith (White Teeth, The Autograph Man, On Beauty) to make up a fictional character. By any measure, creating character is at the heart of the fictional enterprise, and this book concentrates on writers who share a talent for making something recognizably human out of words. The purpose here, though, is variety. Contributions are from the likes of Aleksandar Hemon, Hari Kunzru, George Saunders, Colm Toibin, David Mitchell, among others. Sales benefit 826 New York, a nonprofit organization that supports students (ages 6-18) with their writing.
