Changing My Mind by Zadie Smith
The Cover: British novelist Zadie Smith meets UK leading illustrator Si Scott. What else is there to say besides… Brilliant.
P.s. Mini Q&A with Si about his book cover design for Zadie.
The Book: If you love her fiction, you will enjoy the fact that Smith’s voice is just as funny, insightful, unaffected and wise in her non-fiction essays. In this, which covers everything from the joys of reading Nabokov to Italian cinema, from the conditions of life in Liberia to her own relationship with her family and father, the reader gets to know aspects of her as a person, not merely as an author. It is instantly clear that she is not merely a dazzling writer, but an incredible human being, as well as a fine journalist and reviewer.
