Teeming with life and crackling with energy - a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood

'Astonishing. 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

'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

'Witty, exhilarating and wise... Once again, Bernardine Evaristo reminds us she is one of Britain's best writers' Nikesh Shukla

'Exceptional. Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl... You have to order it right now' Stylist

'At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards' Red

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.

Review:

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)

Weaves through time and space with crackling originality (Vogue)

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)

An exceptional book that unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. Order it right now (Stylist)

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)

Brims with vitality (FT)

With this rich composition, Evaristo deserves a toast (Literary Review)

Masterful... A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain (Elle)

'Girl, Woman, Other is about struggle, but it is also about love, joy and imagination. (Guardian)

Threads together the diverse life stories of 12 black British women in ways that deliberately resist categorisation (Metro)
