Product description




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.



Review


Weaves through time and space with crackling originality (Vogue)


null



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)


null



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)
