miss zadie

currently reading zadie smith 'white teeth'...it takes quite a bit for me to get interested in modern fiction, and she is very young, so i was apprehensive (because i tend to be snotty like that, she's actually my age)...now that i am 367 pages into the book, i can't believe how well i am enjoying it. she is a superb story teller, reminding me mostly of rushdie, a bit of tom robbins mixed in there (but not on purpose i imagine). it's hard to say without sounding like mush, but she writes with wisdom, without sounding 'old'. and for the summer months, it is the perfect read...being not too heavy, but still intelligent and beautiful. i would highly recommend it.
