Zadie Smith’s deeply funny, subversive and splendidly entertaining „The Autograph Man” is a whirlwind tour of celebrity and our fame-obsessed times. Following one Alex-Li Tandem – a twenty-something, Chinese-Jewish autograph dealer turned on by sex, drugs and organised religion – it takes in London and New York, love and death, fathers and sons, as Alex tries to discover how a piece of paper can bring him closer to his heart’s desire. Exposing our misconceptions about our idols – about ourselves – Zadie Smith delivers in „The Autograph Man” a brilliant, unforgettable tale about who we are and what we really want to be. „A glorious concoction written by our most beguiling and original prose-wizard”. („Independent on Sunday”). „A brilliant comedy with a tantalising throb of mystic philosophy underneath”. (Philip Hensher, Books of the Year, „Spectator”). „A pleasure from the first page to the last”. („Evening Standard”). „Intellectually agile …ecstatic inventiveness”. („Time”). „A classic”. („Spectator”). „Genuinely funny and entertaining”. („Guardian”). „Vibrant, highly imaginative”. („Jewish Chronicle”). „Full of irony, humour, the search for love and the fear of death …a touching, thoughtful, deeply felt rite-of-passage novel”. („Sunday Telegraph”). Zadie Smith was born in north-west London in 1975. Her debut novel, „White Teeth”, won the Whitbread First Novel Award, the Guardian First Book Award, the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction, and the Commonwealth Writers’ First Book Prize, and was included in „Time” 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. Her second novel, „On Beauty”, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the Orange Prize for Fiction. She has written two further novels, „The Autograph Man” and „NW”, a collection of essays „Changing My Mind”, and also edited short story anthology „The Book of Other People”. Zadie Smith was chosen by „Granta” as one of its twenty best young British novelists in 2003, and as well as to „Granta” has contributed writing to the „New Yorker” and the „Guardian”. Zadie Smith’s new novel, „NW”, is available from September 2012.
