Dancing. Zadie Smith riffs on multiple themes throughout her novel titled, Swing Time. I found myself mesmerized by her writing rhythm as she explored friendship, class, race and the divergent paths that lives can take. The whole novel felt to me like a dance, as Smith introduced level after level of insight into the lives of these interesting characters and the worlds in which they live. Readers who enjoy finely written literary fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
