Interleaving 10 new and unpublished stories with some of her best-loved pieces from the New Yorker, Zadie Smith, presents a rich and varied collection of fiction. Moving across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, this is a sharply alert and prescient collection about time and place, identity and rebirth, the persistent legacies that haunt our present selves and the uncanny futures that rush up to meet us.
