    1. Enjoyed reading your review! I did notice that Smith moves at a brisk pace in these essays. I feel like her fast pace, coupled with the length of her novels, could make for less engaging fiction.


      1. I’ve read two of her novels, both over 400 pages. I can’t even imagine her attempting short stories, except that White Teeth often felt like a bunch of short stories.
