SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2019

Teeming with life and crackling with energy, told through many distinctive voices, this novel follows the lives 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 sparklingly contemporary, Girl, Woman, Other is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times- celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.

'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 *
