Waterstones Says

Tracking the lives and loves of a dozen British women through generations and social classes, Girl, Woman, Other weaves a distinctive, illuminating tapestry of modern British life.

Winner of the British Book Awards Fiction Book of the Year 2020

Shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2020

Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction 2020

Joint Winner of the Booker Prize 2019

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Her idiosyncratic prose rhythms imitate the wayward impulses of inner thought, allowing readers to feel intimately connected to her characters.' - The Daily Telegraph

'Vivid and infectious.' - The Financial Times

'Weaves through time and space with crackling originality.' -  Vogue

'If you don't yet know her work, you should - she says things about modern Britain that no one else does.' - Maggie Gee, The Guardian

'Evaristo's prose hums with life... At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards.' - Red

'There is an astonishing uniqueness to all Bernardine Evaristo's writing, but especially in Girl, Woman, Other. How she can speak through twelve different people and give them each such distinct and vibrant voices... I loved it. So much.' - Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie

'Hilarious, heartbreaking, honest. Generations of women and the people they have loved and unloved - the complexities of sex, gender, politics, friendship and love, fears and regrets, the complications of success, the difficulties of intimacy. I truly haven't enjoyed reading a book in so long.' - Warsan Shire

'Didn't think I could love a Bernardine Evaristo novel more than The Emperor's Babe but with Girl, Woman, Other she might just have outdone herself.' - Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People

'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

'Bernardine Evaristo is one of those writers who should be read by everyone, everywhere. Her tales marry down-to-earth characters with engrossing story lines about identity, and the UK of today.' - Elif Shafak

'Witty, exhilarating and wise... Once again, Bernardine Evaristo reminds us she is one of Britain's best writers, an iconic and unique voice, filled with warmth, subtly and humanity. Exceptional.' - Nikesh Shukla

“An impressive book, but something of a curate's egg”

This was my first experience of reading Evaristo, and on balance it was a positive one. It occupies the grey area between short story collection and novel - each of the first 12 sections could be a story in its own... More
