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

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Nobody lives in a vacuum, especially in a city like London where people’s lives intersect every moment of the day. Girl, Woman, Other follows 12 very different characters, each with their own chapter and the experience is like listening to a novel, a short story collection and a prose poem in one. Bernardine Evaristo’s writing flows across the page with no capitalisation and minimal punctuation, laying the groundwork for Anna-Maria Nabirye's utterly compelling narration. Let yourself sink into the words and become part of the experience. Empathetic, frank and unflinching, this multi-faceted portrait of black British women’s lives will have you fretting over their struggles, but also sharing their laughter and joy.
