Zadie Smith, Putting Herself Into Her Work

The Post calls On Beauty a "comic novel." I suppose, but its also a hip hop novel and a haitian american novel and a mixed race novel. Its just a freakin good read-- reading Howard's End beforehand helped me to enjoy it , I think.
Zadie Smith, Putting Herself Into Her Work: "She is a literary rock star, Zadie Smith, all of 30 years old and spoken about in the same breath as fellow Brits Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Martin Amos ('a postmodern Charles Dickens,' this newspaper declared her)."
