'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

Skvelá kniha Bernardine Evaristo, ktorá v roku 2019 zaslúžene získala Bookerovu cenu, rozpráva príbeh dvanástich britských žien. Riešia sa v nej pritom aj témy ako rasizmus, feminizmus, vzťahy medzi matkami a dcérami, ale aj závislosť, násilie či predsudky. Je písaná netradičným spôsobom - chýbajú v nej veľké písmená na začiatku viet a bodky na ich konci, na to si však rýchlo zvyknete. Jednoznačne odporúčam.
