Opis książki

***WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019*** SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER This is Britain as you've never seen 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 SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2019 A warm, humorous and ambitious novel, and one that is enjoyably playful in style. It is both a product of its time and unlike any book ever written about Britain * Economist * such a satisfying read, funny and true, the characters are so real you feel you know them already -- Miranda Sawyer via Twitter Threads together the diverse life stories of 12 black British women in ways that deliberately resist categorisation * Metro * '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 * Beautifully interwoven stories of identity, race, womanhood, and the realities
