Foyles Notes

***WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019***

Synopsis

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
