On Beauty by Zadie Smith

OnbeautyLoosely based on (and an homage to) E.M. Forster’s novel, Howard’s End, the novel is set on both sides of the Atlantic. On Beauty follows two stories: Howard who is a Rembrandt scholar who doesn’t care for Rembrandt and his family living in New England; and Howard’s older son, Jerome who has fallen for the daughter of a right-wing American icon. At times funny, this is a novel about family life, marriage, and the clash between liberal and conservative academic values.
