Teaser Tuesday: On Beauty



Here Howard made the mistake of looking up and around him as public speakers are advised to do.  He caught sight of Monty, who was smiling and nodding, like a king at a fool who has come to entertain him.
-- On Beauty by Zadie Smith. From a scene where antagonist professors Howard and Monte are debating a point at the big faculty meeting.

This book won the Orange Prize in 2006.  I just finished it and am mulling what I will write in my review. I have mixed reactions.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Looking forward to your review of this one -- I'm not wild about the premise but everyone raves about Smith's writing I feel like I ought to read this one!

I can picture that kind of look! I haven't read this and will add it to my TBR stack!
