Notes:
Zadie Smith takes us deep into the life of a young woman, Fatou, domestic servant to the Derawals and escapee from one set of hardships to another. Beginning and ending outside the Embassy of Cambodia, which happens to be located in Willesden, NW London, Zadie Smith's absorbing, moving and wryly observed story suggests how the apparently small things in an ordinary life always raise larger, more extraordinary questions.

Reviews:
A nuanced novella, focusing on Natou, a Nigerian immigrant who wrestles with how wide should our concern be for the suffering of the oppressed. The narrative is simple; the moral, ethical, political and religious issues it raises are not. There is much food for thought in this well-written book.
