‘Moving exhilaratingly across genres and perspectives, from the historic to the vividly current to the slyly dystopian, Grand Union is a sharply alert and prescient collection about time and place, identity and rebirth. Interweaving 11 completely new and unpublished stories with some her best-loved pieces from The New Yorker and elsewhere, Zadie presents an incredibly rich and varied collection of fiction.’

Zadie Smith is best-known for novels White TeethOn Beauty and Swing Time, alongside novellas and essay collections. Elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2002, Zadie is currently a tenured professor of fiction at New York University and a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Diana Evans is the award-winning author of Ordinary People, The Wonder and 26a.
