A mercurial mix of established classics and new stories from peerless Zadie Smith, Grand Union, touches on the themes and topics of extraordinary importance and power in this disjointed age. The reflective character study of gimlet eyes environmental dystopia, this collection is further evidence of Smith’s mastery of the form. Signed Edition In the summer of 1959, an Antiguan immigrant in London, lives the last day of his life, unknowingly caught up in someone else’s story of hatred and division, of resistance and revolt. A mother looks back on her first incursions into matters of the human heart – and other parts of the human body – into consideration the ways in which the desire is always an act of negotiation, of destruction and self-invention. A cop fallen from grace stands among the shards of his life, unable to move forward towards a future that holds no place for him. Moral panic spreads like a contagion through the upper echelons of the City of New York – cancelled, people look disconcertingly like the rest of us. A young scion of the elite technocratic chasing ghosts, through an award of virtual reality, driven by a little girl with a runny nose and no surviving family. We all take a much-needed break from this mess, a vacation package, where the swimming pool is the electric blue is constantly restocked, while the political and environmental collapse happen far away, to someone else. Overlap of ten completely new stories with some of his best-loved pieces from the New Yorker and elsewhere, Zadie Smith introduces a breathtaking rich and varied collection of fiction. Movement exhilaratingly all the music genres and perspectives, from the historical to the vividly current to the sneaky dystopian, Grand Union is a strong warning, and a prescient collection of time and space, identity and rebirth, the lingering legacy that will haunt our present and themselves, and the disturbing futures that run the meeting.
