**LONGLISTED FOR 2017 MAN BOOKER PRIZE**

The bestselling, prize-winning, generation-defining Zadie Smith's new unmissable novel out in paperback.

How do we become who we are?
Can we ever truly escape our origins?
Must we dance to the music of our time?

Set in London, New York and West Africa, Swing Time is about two brown girls from Willesden who dream of being dancers. Only one Tracey has the talent.

But the other has ideas which take her further than she could ever have imagined. It is a story of finding happiness in the meanest of places and feeling sad when all around you are happy.

It's about the choices we make and the choices made for us. Above all, it's a tale of the friendships that anchor us, define us, and change us forever.
