Male lust and female friendship draw two families together - despite the gulf that exists between them - in Zadie Smith’s engaging satire.
Zadie Smith’s dazzlingly energetic and deeply human story about friendship, music and true identity, how they shape us and how we can survive them.
Two brown girls dream of being dancers – but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about Black bodies and Black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It’s a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early 20s, never to be revisited. But never quite forgotten, either…
