THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'Exceptional. You have to order it right now' Stylist

This is Britain as you've never read 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

'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.' 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

Girl, Woman, Other Reviews

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 *
Such a satisfying read, funny and true, the characters are so real you feel you know them already -- Miranda Sawyer via Twitter
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 *
My favorite book of 2019 . . . the most absorbing book I read all year. This novel is a master class in storytelling. It is absolutely unforgettable. When I turned the final page, I felt the ache of having to leave the world Evaristo created but I also felt the excitement of getting to read the book all over again. It should have won the Booker alone. It deserves all the awards and then some. -- Roxanne Gay
