I can’t stop thinking about the essays in Feel Free. Since I finished it, when my mind wanders, it wanders toward the relationship between Justin Bieber and Martin Buber, or the reasons to reread Edward St. Aubyn, or spend more time in the library, or delete my Facebook. I’m looking at the world through Smith’s eyes, which is a colossal treat. Following along with a Zadie Smith argument is one of the biggest pleasures the literary world has to offer. And for fans of her fiction, don’t worry—her voice in essay form is just as alive, her images just as vivid. There’s nothing in Feel Free not to love, and so much to think about. Enjoy.
