Zadie Smith, bestselling and award-winning author, will be discussing her brand new – and first – collection of short stories Grand Union with Diana Evans at The Royal Institution in London on 2nd October.
‘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 Interweaving 11 completely new and unpublished stories with some her best-loved pieces from The New Yorker and elsewhere, Zadie presents an incredibly rich and varied collection of fiction.’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 Teeth, On 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.
