Finished reading Zadie Smith's WHITE TEETH....a book about race and it's relationship to place and how place can be transformed by race. She won the Guardian First Book award and reviews of her book are everywhere. Smith has even been described as a kind of Jane Austin (I wonder what Chiara would say about that). However, Smith has been accused of ripping off, to some degree, the style of Salman Rushdie. And when she was in New York to promote her book, she says she gained 15 pounds by raiding the hotel's minibar. (I wonder if Rushdie's ever done the same).
