Zadie Smith Shortlisted for the British Book Awards '30 from 30'
Zadie Smith's turn-of-the-century debut novel White Teeth has made it to the British Book Awards "30 from 30" shortlist, putting it up for a trophy that will crown one book the most influential of the past three decades. A one-off prize, the award celebrates 30 years of publishing excellence since the British Book Awards, or Nibbies, were launched in 1990.
The shortlist, handpicked by reader and trade votes, is made up of past winners and one wildcard. The winner will be announced later this year.
