Manifesto (Paperback)Bernardine Evaristo (author)
From one of Britain’s most inspiring literary trailblazers, the Booker-winning author and activist Bernardine Evaristo, comes a powerful and intimate manifesto on creativity, vision and the importance of never giving up.
The powerful, urgent manifesto on never giving up from Booker prize-winning trailblazer, Bernardine Evaristo.
Bernardine Evaristo's 2019 Booker win - the first by a Black woman - was a revolutionary moment both for British culture and for her. After three decades as a trailblazing writer, teacher and activist, she moved from the margins to centre stage, taking her place in the spotlight at last. Her journey was a long one, but she made it, and she made history.
Manifesto is Bernardine Evaristo's intimate and inspirational, no-holds-barred account of how she did it, refusing to let any barriers stand in her way. She charts her creative rebellion against the mainstream and her life-long commitment to the imaginative exploration of 'untold' stories. And drawing deeply on her own experiences, she offers a vital contribution to current conversations around social issues such as race, class, feminism, sexuality and aging.
This is a unique book about staying true to yourself and to your vision. It's about how to be unstoppable - in your craft, your work, your life. It is Bernardine Evaristo's manifesto for never giving up.
