Swing Time

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2017

by Zadie Smith
Pippa Bennett-Warner

Audiobook
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Swing Time by Zadie Smtih, read by Pippa Bennett Warner. Long listed for the 2017 Man Booker Prize. Two brown girls dream of being dancers - but only one, Tracey, has talent. The other has ideas: about rhythm and time, about black bodies and black music, what constitutes a tribe, or makes a person truly free. It's a close but complicated childhood friendship that ends abruptly in their early twenties, never to be revisited, but never quite forgotten, either... Dazzlingly energetic and deeply human, Swing Time is a story about friendship and music and stubborn roots, about how we are shaped by these things and how we can survive them. Moving from north-west London to West Africa, it is an exuberant dance to the music of time.
