Zadie Smith is a prize-winning author of essays, short stories and the novels, «White Teeth,» «On Beauty,» and her most recent, «Swing Time.»

Michael Chabon is also a prize-winning author of essays, short stories and the novels «The Mysteries of Pittsburgh,» «The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,» and his most recent, «Moonglow.»
«Moonglow» and «Swing Time» share remarkable similarities.

Both explore influence of family, cultural heritage and politics in shaping identity and how personal obligations are (or are not) affected by public events. Both reflect the unlikely blend of emulation and resentment that molds children’s relationships with their elders. Central to the overall structure of each novel are questions of cultural identity and the conflicting forces that surround the privileged and the dispossessed.
