1 Smith, Zadie White Teeth : A Novel
New York, NY, U.S.A. Random House, Incorporated 2000 0375501851 / 9780375501852 First U. S. Edition Hard Cover 
[2000]. Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Beige boards. The spine is stamped in silver; the front board in blind. Quarto. 448pps. First printing. There is mild bumping to the spine-ends, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; absolutely no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is lightly rubbed; the original price is intact. An excellent, collector's-quality copy of he author's first novel. ".At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of Englandís irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesnít quite match her name (Jamaican for 'no problem'). Samadís late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbalís every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against Londonís racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, 'White Teeth' revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be refunded.
