Zadie Smith’s NW Brought To Life With Multimedia Tour Of Locations

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.
