    Set on both sides of the Atlantic, Zadie Smith's third novel is a brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, intersections of the personal and political, and an honest look at people's deceptions. It is also, as you might expect, very funny indeed.

    Overall

    This is my first Zadie Smith novel. "On Beauty" is all about real people with real lives, emotions and messes to fix or live with. This author seems to understand men and their poor judgement when it comes to pussy. Zadie Smith understands how very large women feel about their bodies and how hard they try to squelch the feelings of unattractiveness. This is a very rich novel filled with laugh-out-loud humor and deep pain.
