Even if you haven't read anything by Zadie Smith, you've probably seen her name splashed in gigantic letters across one of her brightly hued book covers. She's one of those authors who can hawk a tome based on her name alone, and it's for a good reason—her debut novel White Teeth won several awards, and she's since cemented herself as a major literary voice with a snappy, eccentric, and game-changing treatment of race, religion, and cultural identity. Smith's also a tenured creative writing professor at NYU and has twice been named one of Granta's 20 Best of Young British Novelists, so, ya know, maybe us lit nerds should listen to her. Her sixth novel, The Fraud, will be released on September 5; I'm excited to hear more about the "kaleidoscopic work" based on a historic trial that divided Victorian England.
