    白牙 | White Teeth by Zadie Smith

    晨曦之初,世纪之末,乱哄哄北伦敦。这里有世界上所有的肤色,以及相同的雪白牙齿。

    刚刚结束三十年婚姻的阿吉觉得,活在哪里,就该死在哪里,这才叫死得其所。他就该死在城里那条污秽的街道上。但阴差阳错,他没死成。六个星期后,他与十九岁的黑人姑娘再入围城,走入乱哄哄的北伦敦,为一场世纪末的悲伤而荒凉的大戏拉开序幕。

    At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England’s irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesn’t quite match her name (Jamaican for “no problem”).

    Samad’s late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbal’s every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against London’s racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.
