Product Details

Praise

“Intelligent. . . . exquisitely clever. . . . an ironic commentary about fame, mortality, and the triumph of image over reality.” —The Boston Globe

“The same bracing intelligence and salty humor that distinguished her debut. . . . Smith scatters marvelous sentences and sharp insights on nearly every page.” —LA Times

“A lovely surprise. Zadie Smith . . . has come out with a second book that is actually better than its predecessor: its dialog funnier, its language even more plugged in, more wired.” —Esquire

“A preternaturally gifted . . . writer [with] a voice that’s street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time.” —The New York Times

“Savvy, witty and exuberant.” —New York Daily News

“Smith is young and smart, and . . . she proves to be an amazingly gifted writer.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Smith writes sharp dialogue for every age and race–and she’s funny as hell.” —Newsweek

“[Zadie Smith] possesses a more than ordinary share of talent.” —USA Today

“Absolutely delightful.” —Chicago Tribune

“Smith’s clever, aphoristic observations and snappy dialogue are so delightful they tend to become addictive. . . . [The Autograph Man is] always entertaining.” —Elle
