With her historic Booker win, Bernardine Evaristo is the author everyone is talking about. The standout book of 2019, Girl, Woman, Other is the number book you need to read this year. ***WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019*** SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER This is Britain as you've never read it. This is Britain as it has never been told. From Newcastle to Cornwall, from the birth of the twentieth century to the teens of the twenty-first, Girl, Woman, Other follows a cast of twelve characters on their personal journeys through this country and the last hundred years. They're each looking for something - a shared past, an unexpected future, a place to call home, somewhere to fit in, a lover, a missed mother, a lost father, even just a touch of hope . . . 'Masterful . . . A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain' Elle 'Exceptional. Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl... [It] unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. You have to order it right now' Stylist 'Bernardine Evaristo can take any story from any time and turn it into something vibrating with life' Ali Smith, author of How to be both 'Sparkling, inventive' Sunday Times 'Funny, sad, tender and true, deserves to win awards' Red 'Brims with vitality' Financial Times SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2019

  1. Bästa boken jag läste 2019
    Nina S, 3 mars 2020

    Den här boken är verkligen helt fantastisk och borde ha vunnit Booker-priset ensam istället för att dela det. Tolv berättarröster, vilket kan tyckas lite många. Men det kändes inte så, för ovanligt nog har Evaristo lyckats göra alla lika intressanta. Det har fått ett kapitel var och det finns kopplingar mellan vissa av karaktärerna vilket jag alltid gillar. Boken är skriven i ett slags flow utan skiljetecken vilket kan låta svårläst och kanske inte passar alla, men jag vande mig snabbt och ty... Läs hela recensionen

My favorite book of 2019 . . . the most absorbing book I read all year. This novel is a master class in storytelling. It is absolutely unforgettable. When I turned the final page, I felt the ache of having to leave the world Evaristo created but I also felt the excitement of getting to read the book all over again. It should have won the Booker alone. It deserves all the awards and then some. -- Roxanne Gay A warm, humorous and ambitious novel, and one that is enjoyably playful in style. It is both a product of its time and unlike any book ever written about Britain * Economist * Such a satisfying read, funny and true, the characters are so real you feel you know them already -- Miranda Sawyer via Twitter Threads together the diverse life stories of 12 black British women in ways that deliberately resist categorisation * Metro * 'Girl, Woman, Other is about struggle, but it is also about love, joy and imagination. * Guardian * Masterful... A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain * Elle * With this rich composition, Evaristo deserves a toast * Literary Review * Brims with vitality * FT * 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 * An exceptional book that unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. Order it right now * Stylist * 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 * Weaves through time and space with crackling originality * Vogue * Beautifully interwoven stories of identity, race, womanhood, and the realities of modern Britain. The characters are so vivid, the writing is beautiful and it brims with humanity. -- Nicola Sturgeon via Twitter If you haven't discovered [Evaristo] yet, I urge you to read all and any of her books. Devoured one a day already and ordered more. Hilarious, compassionate, moving and brutally honest. -- Richard E Grant via Twitter Give [Evaristo] more prizes! All the prizes! It has the pace of a whistle stop tour and yet it seems no detail of the myriad of lives we encounter is missed. -- Graham Norton via Twitter
