On Tour with Zadie Smith’s New Book

Zadie Smith NW

How awesome is this? Now you can go on tour to the locations of the new book by Zadie Smith, NW.
Reminds me of the bestseller Angels & Demons by Dan Brown, that made us all go on pilgrimage to the locations of his book.

Would this be the new black?

Penguin has put together a visual and audio tour of the locations in Zadie Smith‘s new novel NW.

The tour includes four locations from the book. Users can click on these locations, which are pinpointed on a map, to launch a video that contains photos of those real life locations. An audio reading of the book plays as the text that is being read appears on the photos. Follow this link to check it out.

Here is an excerpt from the new book:

From there to here, a journey longer than it looks. For a second, this local detail holds Shar’s interest. Then she looks away, ashing her cigarette on the kitchen floor, though the door is open and the grass only a foot away. She is slow, maybe, and possibly clumsy; or she is traumatized, or distracted.
