Zadie Smith 25 November 2009
Zadie Smith
On her collection of essays

Zadie Smith is well-known as the author of the extraordinary 'White Teeth', published at the age of 24 when she was straight out of university. Since then she has produced 'The Autograph Man' and the highly acclaimed 'On Beauty', which won the Orange Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker. She thought her next book was going to be another novel, or a theoretical book about writing. But it turned out to be a collection of essays - her thoughts on everything from Roland Barthes to 'Date Movies'. She talks to Jenni about 'Changing My Mind'.

'Changing My Mind: Occasional Essays' by Zadie Smith is published by Hamish Hamilton, ISBN: 978-0-241-14295-0
