Two girls on a north west London council estate join a community dance class and become friends. We follow their lives as they grow into their teens through their twenties and thirties.
One ends up a single mum living in the council flat she grew up in, the other PA to an international pop star doing Good Works in West Africa.
But, as always, Zadie Smith’s novel is about much more than this.
