I read Zadie Smith's On Beauty a month ago and I just never got around to blogging about it. But I just read an article on CNN.com about Smith and the novel and I decided to give a brief mention.
This is the book I've been hoping Zadie Smith would write. She was acclaimed for White Teeth which was well written but nothing that I loved. The Autograph Man didn't thrill me, but it had something. On Beauty delivers. It's one of those Literature with a capital L and doesn't necessarily have a plot that goes from point A to B because life goes on after the ending, but it is the journey of experiencing the two families that just works for me. I loved this book.
