The book does many things well. Smith has a serious ear for dialogue and White Teeth is an expansive, detailed, and beautifully written attempt to encapsulate the social chaos that blossoms at the bridging of generational, national and sexual mindsets. Her cast of characters is varied and nearly every one of them comes off as a fully flesh and blood human being. I mean it in the sense that the territory she stands on--that her narrator in White Teeth stands on--is one whose boundaries are staked out in terms of what she is not.

My friend Brandon commented below that Smith shows "blatant contempt for every character except the one who is clearly based on the author.

On the contrary, I think Smith has deep feelings for most of her characters--even the more despicable ones like Crispin and Millat. The Ironist defines herself through the process of over-defining others. Every character in this novel is over-defined, over-drawn. While this provides us with a great, at times excruciating level of detail, it also paints each of them into a kind of cage wherein all of their actions are predictable. Each of them has a sort of "final vocabulary" cf.

Rorty that defines the limits of what they might do or say--the doctrines of Islam and the Watchtower Society, of PETA or clinical science. In the worst cases, their adherence to these vocabularies allows Smith to slip them into easy "types" see: Mr. The metastable personality is the natural reaction to uncomfortability with final vocabularies, but it itself is of course just as self-defining as any of them albeit in the opposite direction. It instinctually yearns for instability, but prefers to admire chaos from afar rather than living in it.

The metastable personality knows that in order to maintain coherence it must remain stable, and that the only way to remain stable is to balance itself on the disbelief of all known final vocabularies.

Smith writes off worldview after worldview, but is of course unable to articulate her own because her own is simply the absence of adherence to any such worldview.
