On Beauty

by Zadie Smith
£7.99   paperback  Penguin Books (2006)

On Beauty by Zadie Smith Why do we fall in love with the people we do?
Why do we visit our mistakes on our children?
What makes life truly beautiful?
 
Set in New England mainly and London partly, On Beauty concerns a pair of feuding families - the Belseys and the Kipps - and a clutch of doomed affairs. It puts low morals among high ideals and asks some searching questions about what life does to love.
 
For the Belseys and the Kipps, the confusions - both personal and political - of our uncertain age are about to be brought close to home: right to the heart of family.

"Glorious. Wonderfully engaging, wonderfully observed... that rare thing: a novel that is as affecting as it is entertaining."
(New York Times)
