Zadie Smith stopped by The Leonard Lopate Show to talk about some of her favorite books, films, and more!
Zadie Smith talks about joining Harper’s to review books for the “New Books” column. She’ll also discuss her latest book, Changing My Mind: Occasional Essays, just released in paperback, a collection that shows she’s equally at home in the world of great books and bad movies, family and philosophy, British comedians and Italian divas.
Kurt Andersen talks with literary superstar Zadie Smith. Smith's debut White Teeth, published when she was just 24, tells a complex and vivid story of two London families over 18 years. Her new novel On Beauty tackles racial, ethnic, and class identity with humor and intensity.
