Briefly...Zadie Smith's NW

NW Girl.

First time I've read her work. Didn't like this one.

She's a talented writer, but I feel there needs to be balance between technique and storytelling. There's just way too much going on stylistically in this book, to the point of distraction. She's literature's answer to Chip-Fu on the Nervous Breakdown album. (at least she is here)

Also, whenever her characters were speaking patois, it felt like her characters were trying to speak patois.

That's all.

Thanks for reading.
