Zadie Smith

Novelist Zadie Smith has won many awards for her literature at a relatively young age. Born in 1975 to a Jamaican mother and an English father in London, Smith published her first novel White Teeth when she was only 25. The book received enthusiastic praise, and Smith was awarded the Guardian First Book Award, the Whitbread First Novel Award and the Commonwealth Writer's Prize in addition to two EMMA (Ethnic and Multicultural Media Award) for her depiction of ethnicity and class in multicultural London.

Since White Teeth, Smith has written three books. The Autograph Man (2002) told the story of obsession and celebrity, and it won the 2003 Jewish Quarterly Literary Prize for Fiction. On Beauty (2005), like White Teeth, tackled cultural issues, and Smith received the 2006 Orange Prize for fiction for the book. Fail Better (2006) is a non-fiction book about writing.




Smith is currently a Radcliffe Fellow at Harvard University. In 2006, Granta magazine named her one of its 20 Best of Young British Novelists.
