My first foray into short stories and who better to do it with than (potentially) my favourite author of all time.
As always Zadie Smith knocks it out of the park with her new(ish) boom Grand Union. This is a collection of short stories all different but with the underlying theme of change and time.
The variety is vast from longer more meaty stories that leave you wanting more to snippets of daily observations that leave you in awe of Smith’s lyrical majesty.
Some are set in England and some are set in the States. Some are in the present, some in the past and some in dystopian future. All of them make you think and consider this idea of time that constructs our lives without our control.
Still not 100% sure if short stories are my thing or not but I’ll continue to keep reading sentences created by Zadie ❤️📚
