(Save 50%) Girl, Woman, Other (WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019)
A love song to modern Britain and black womanhood
Teeming with life and crackling with energy - a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood
Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.
Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
Weaves through time and space with crackling originality (Vogue)
Exuberant, bursting at the seams in delightful ways... Evaristo continues to expand and enhance our literary canon. If you want to understand modern day Britain, this is the writer to read (New Statesman)
An exceptional book that unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. Order it right now (Stylist)
Evaristo's prose hums with life as characters seem to step off the page fully formed. At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards (Red)
