White Teeth

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

White Teeth manages to skillfully blend both tragedy and wit, while portraying the dilemmas of immigrants and their families as they come face to face with a new and alien society. It also attempts to bring out the cultural aspects of the non-British. Some of the characters are used to mock the middle and working class in Britain. The book takes the reader into the lives of Archie Jones, a 47-year old Englishman and Samad Iqbal, a Bengali Muslim hailing from Bangladesh, who are friends since 1945, when they were part of a tank crew during the last few days of World War II. Samad finds it extremely difficult to stick to the tenets of Islam in an otherwise English life as he constantly faces conflicts on his moral character such as drinking and an affair with his children’s music teacher. The lives of both the Joneses and Iqbals further entwine with that of a Jewish-Catholic family, the Chalfens, who symbolise the liberal mind of North Londoners. White Teeth is a life-affirming and hilarious book that has the characters dealing, among many other things, with love, friendship, war, and the clash of three cultures belonging to three diverse families spread over three generations. White Teeth is the winner of numerous honours and awards such as the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Whitbread Book Award, Betty Trask Award, Guardian First Book Award and Commonwealth Writers First Book Prize. The book was adapted into a four-part television series that stars Om Puri and Phil Davis.
