White Teeth

White Teeth is a 2000 novel by the British author Zadie Smith.

It focuses on the later lives of two wartime friends—the Bangladeshi Samad Iqbal and the Englishman Archie Jones, and their families in London.

The book won multiple honours, including the 2000 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction, the 2000 Whitbread Book Award in category best first novel, the Guardian First Book Award, the Commonwealth Writers First Book Prize, and the Betty Trask Award. Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

A four-part television adaptation of the novel was made and broadcast on Channel 4 in 2002. It was directed by Julian Jarrold and stars Om Puri as Samad and Phil Davis as Archie.

Each episode focuses on a major male character as he encounters a turning point in his life: The Peculiar Second Marriage of Archie Jones, The Temptation of Samad Iqbal, The Trouble With Millat, and The Return of Magid Iqbal.
