Moving on to the next element under attention, White Teeth by Zadie Smith is a highly unique novel that focuses on the lives of first generation immigrants and second generation immigrants4. Zadie Smith sheds light on the complex routes that lives take when one chooses to take a path other than the one that fate appears to have in mind at times. Zadie Smith presents the reader with the lives of three families whose lives are not only highly complex in their own right but also highly disturbed in certain areas of their family interactions. Zadie Smith paints a picture in which every generation seems to have a right upon the decisions that it has to make and the life that it has to make for itself.
In the scenario that Zadie Smith presents, the reader can see that once a person has chosen to adopt a way of life, a point comes where it is almost impossible to change paths or the way of life. As the three families upon which Zadie Smith sheds light upon continue to evolve, one sees that there is hardly any degree of control that a person has on their life after a certain point. In this regard Zadie Smith’s White Teeth is nothing less than a work of art.
