Zadie Smith; Novelist, Essayist, Thinker for our time. Zadie's first novel White Teeth was published at the tender age of 25, she was still a student at Cambridge when the unfinished manuscript of her first novel sparked a bidding war between publishers- it went on to be an instant success garnering praise and awards. Since then, she has long been an interpreter of multicultural Britain but has resisted becoming a symbol for it. She has become the rare kind of writer who’s opinion is regularly sought out because it is hers— in perusing her body of books, articles and essays it seems the woman can make an interesting sentence about most anything, from Jay- Z to the roman philosopher Marcus Aurelius. We met in 2017, when my good friend Catie Lazarus (who this episode is dedicated, we lost Catie to cancer in December) paired us onstage in her show Employee of the Month. Zadie Smith used the early lockdown period to pen a concise and powerful volume of six personal essays titled Intimations, that was released last summer. All of her royalties for the book go to two charities, The Equal Justice Initiative and The COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for New York.
