The cover of White Teeth by Zadie Smith, with white text on an orange backgroundBy Zadie Smith. This book is written with such wit: mixing the vernacular English with sophisticated vocabulary, implementing precise descriptions of human behavior and even science. It is a master satire of an immigrant community reflecting on the struggles that arise with assimilation, and with a voyeuristic curiosity peeking into the lives of ordinary people. This book will make you laugh uncomfortably and think for days. It is a true gem of literature published when Smith was still an undergraduate student. Her voice is unique and crystal clear. —Milena Berestko ’22
