Staff Reviews

This is Zadie Smith’s first novel in more than seven years, and I think that is cause for a new holiday. Told in a fractured, slanted style, NW is a portrait of Northern London, a landscape of varied characters and separate worlds that constantly press up against each other. Another bright offering from a brilliant mind.

— Kat

2020 VISION: Clarity—Set in a corner of London thriving with immigrants from all over the globe, NW shows us the breadth of human experience. Lives intersect, home values shift, and the city becomes nearly unrecognizable as it is quickly gentrified. NW’s vibrant community is rich, urban, and truly a melting pot of humankind.


Somewhere in Northwest London stands Caldwell housing estate, a relic of 70s urban planning. Thirty years later four ex-Caldwell kids have all made it out, with varying degrees of success--whatever that means. Living only streets apart, they occupy separate worlds.
