DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Winner of the 2015 Man Booker Prize One of Entertainment Weekly's Top 10 Books of the Decade One of the Top 10 Books of 2014 – Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times A “thrilling, ambitious . . . intense” (Los Angeles Times) novel that explores the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in the late 1970s, from the author of Black Leopard, Red Wolf In A Brief History of Seven Killings, Marlon James combines brilliant storytelling with his unrivaled skills of characterization and meticulous eye for detail to forge an enthralling novel of dazzling ambition and scope. On December 3, 1976, just before the Jamaican general election and two days before Bob Marley was to play the Smile Jamaica Concert to ease political tensions in Kingston, seven gunmen stormed the singer’s house, machine guns blazing. The attack wounded Marley, his wife, and his manager, and injured several others. Little was officially released about the gunmen, but much has been whispered, gossiped and sung about in the streets of West Kingston. Rumors abound regarding the assassins’ fates, and there are suspicions that the attack was politically motivated. A Brief History of Seven Killings delves deep into that dangerous and unstable time in Jamaica’s history and beyond. James deftly chronicles the lives of a host of unforgettable characters – gunmen, drug dealers, one-night stands, CIA agents, even ghosts – over the course of thirty years as they roam the streets of 1970s Kingston, dominate the crack houses of 1980s New York, and ultimately reemerge into the radically altered Jamaica of the 1990s. Along the way, they learn that evil does indeed cast long shadows, that justice and retribution are inextricably linked, and that no one can truly escape his fate. Gripping and inventive, shocking and irresistible, A Brief History of Seven Killings is a mesmerizing modern classic of power, mystery, and insight.

Editor: Henry Holt and Company

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A journalist's obsession brings her to a remote island off the California coast, home to the world's most mysterious and fearsome predators--and the strange band of surfer-scientists who follow them Susan Casey was in her living room when she first saw the great white sharks of the Farallon Islands, their dark fins swirling around a small motorboat in a documentary. These sharks were the alphas among alphas, some longer than twenty feet, and there were too many to count; even more incredible, this congregation was taking place just twenty-seven miles off the coast of San Francisco. In a matter of months, Casey was being hoisted out of the early-winter swells on a crane, up a cliff face to the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island-dubbed by sailors in the 1850s the "devil's teeth." There she joined Scot Anderson and Peter Pyle, the two biologists who bunk down during shark season each fall in the island's one habitable building, a haunted, 135-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Two days later, she got her first glimpse of the famous, terrifying jaws up close and she was instantly hooked; her fascination soon yielded to obsession-and an invitation to return for a full season. But as Casey readied herself for the eight-week stint, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands that have banished every campaign for civilization in the past two hundred years. The Devil's Teeth is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor needed.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Alex-Li Tandem sells autographs. His business is to hunt for names on paper, collect them, sell them, and occasionally fake them—all to give the people what they want: a little piece of Fame. But what does Alex want? Only the return of his father, the end of religion, something for his headache, three different girls, infinite grace, and the rare autograph of forties movie actress Kitty Alexander. With fries. The Autograph Man is a deeply funny existential tour around the hollow trappings of modernity: celebrity, cinema, and the ugly triumph of symbol over experience. It offers further proof that Zadie Smith is one of the most staggeringly talented writers of her generation. Look for her new book Swing Time, coming November 2016.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Zadie Smith’s dazzling debut caught critics grasping for comparisons and deciding on everyone from Charles Dickens to Salman Rushdie to John Irving and Martin Amis. But the truth is that Zadie Smith’s voice is remarkably, fluently, and altogether wonderfully her own. At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England’s irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesn’t quite match her name (Jamaican for “no problem”). Samad’s late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbal’s every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against London’ s racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Have you noticed how some people try not to show their teeth when smiling for photographs, or they cover their mouths when they smile? First impressions are important.Whether we like it or not, when someone sees us for the first time, they make important decisions and perceptions about us in the first few seconds. More often than not, the first thing people will notice is your smile. Would you rather go to a first date or attend a job interview with a set of nice and white teeth or a set of yellow and stained teeth?Our teeth get discoloured due to various reasons such as aging, staining, chemical damage, diseases or genetics. The most common reasons are usually smoking and stain-causing foods like tea and coffee.Today, cosmetic dentistry is gaining in importance and it no longer is for Hollywood stars or perfect-looking supermodels. It has become more of a necessity than before. A neat set of teeth is important, and so is the colour of your teeth.There are many ways to whiten your teeth. You can go to a dentist to have your teeth professionally whitened in just one or two visits, but that will probably cost you at least $500 depending on the condition of your teeth while those involving laser treatments will cost you at least $1000. Alternatively, you can try at home teeth whitening treatments which should not cost you more than $50-100. However, the concentration of the bleaching gel is milder than those used by dentists. Therefore, home whitening products will typically take a slightly longer time to show full results.An important thing note is that teeth whitening procedures are only for natural teeth and whitened teeth do not last forever. Yes, even if you have spent hundreds to whiten your teeth at the dentist, the results are not permanent. Typically it can last for about 3 years, but the duration varies from person to person depending on whether your teeth are in contact with tobacco, alcohol or dark-coloured foods.So why do you need to pay a high price spend time waiting for your turn at the dentist, when you can do the whitening at home, using what the dentist use? Start today, and give yourself that dazzling million dollar smile

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Freiburg, 20 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: White Teethhas widely been celebrated as one of the best multicultural novels in recent years. The Whitbread judging panel called it a “landmark novel for multicultural Britain, as well as a superb portrait of contemporary London.”. Claire Squires notes that the voicing of different characters and their ethnic group is one of the most apparent feature of White Teeth. From Archie’s bumbling homilies to the “appalling pronunciation” of the customers Samad takes orders from in the restaurant, from Alsana's wacky images to the hybrid street slang of the “Raggastani,” and from Irie’s rising, soap-opera influenced, Antipodean intonation to her accusation that Millat’s Caribbean-toned speech is “not your voice”. You sound ridiculous!” Smith displays a finelytuned ear for linguistic inflections and their sociocultural nuances. This paper takes a look at these “linguistic inflections and their sociocultural nuances” and analyses various varieties of English that are employed in the novel. The main concern, however, is not the description of nonstandard varieties, but the question if these varieties are realistically represented with regard London’s linguistic landscape. In other words, in how far can nonstandard language in fiction be taken as a reliable source for a sociolinguistic analysis? For this purpose, various examples of direct speech as well narrative comments will be compared with real language use. The paper is structured as follows. Starting with a chapter on literary sociolinguistic, I will discuss the conditions and problems that have to be taken into consideration when taking fiction as a source for sociolinguistic research. Then, I will reflect on different approaches in sociolinguistics that are important for the study of nonstandard language that represents ethnic, regional, social and age-related variation. In the major part of this paper, the different nonstandard English varieties that appear inWhite Teeth,such as Cockney, youth language, and Jamaican Creole, as well as language crossing, will be analysed and compared to sociolinguistic studies. The use of Bengali in White Teethhas to be omitted as the study of a language of its own would go beyond the scope of this paper. In my analysis I will also reveal the semiotic and symbolic potential of the literary nonstandard varieties in comparison to their representation in reality.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of London (English Department), course: Contemporary London in Literature, language: English, abstract: Zadie Smith, having a Jamaican mother and an English father, just wanted to write a funny book in which not everybody is white, she did not think much about multiculturalism in London because it is nothing to talk about, it is normal. However, the book became one of the best novels dealing with multiculturalism. A multicultural society consists of two or more different cultures which are different in language, religion, traditions and their systems of values. Britain and especially London became multicultural mainly by immigrants who left their countries mostly for political, demographic or economical reasons in the search for freedom and a better standard of living. Some so-called push- factors are political suppression, bad working conditions or natural disasters. Pull- factors are religious and political freedom and better jobs and chances to learn some money, for example. Britain itself encouraged people from overpopulated and underemployed Commonwealth countries to immigrate because it needed cheap workers to staff the semi-skilled and non-skilled vacancies and to rebuild the war-shattered economy. Most of the immigrants worked in the National Health Service, public transport or in the manufacturing service. Many of them got only low-paid manual jobs and became victims of discriminatory practices. These immigrants started the transformation of Britain and especially of London into a multicultural society. White Teeth is the story of three families from three different cultural backgrounds, the English-Jamaican Jones, the Bangladeshi Iqbals and the Jewish Chalfens, told mainly between 1974 and 1992, set in Willesden, a multicultural suburb in North London, where Zadie Smith herself lives. The novel is told in the tones and structures of Jamaican and Bangladeshi English which makes the novel even more lively.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,5, Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Institut für Anglistik), language: English, abstract: When you start a course in a new semester you have different expectations what to deal with in this course. In sports it is obvious practicing the kind of sport you have chosen. But in English most expectations are different because you have never heard of some topics in your life before. The course “Black British Writing” with Mrs. Bartels fulfilled my expectations surprisingly because we dealt with different British authors whose origins are in southern countries and who live in Great Britain, now. The main part of this course was taken up by the novel White Teeth by Zadie Smith. Therefore it seems appropriate writing an essay about this book. Of course, it is not possible to write ten pages about the whole book, but to concentrate on one important aspect. The aspect I will concentrate on is the introduction and analysis of the members of the three families dominating the novel. The families presented in the novel are not the kind of family I know in real life. Their attitudes towards life differ from ideologies like in Germany which is worth being analysed and that opens new vistas.
