Dívka, žena, jiné


Vítejte v Británii, jak ji ještě neznáte. Kniha Dívka, žena, jiné sleduje strhující osudy dvanácti britských žen na strastiplné pouti napříč uplynulým stoletím. Nebojácná farmářka, lesbická feministka, uklízečka středního věku, úspěšná bankéřka, přísná učitelka či žena v domácnosti s poporodní depresí… Každá z nich je jiná, a přesto se navzájem podobají víc, než by samy čekaly. Spojuje je touha něco nalézt: společnou minulost, nečekanou budoucnost, místo, které by se dalo označit za domov, porozumění, manžela, milenku, ztracenou matku, zmizelého otce nebo jen náznak naděje. Román na pomezí prózy a poezie oceněný Bookerovou cenou je oslavou černošských žen a jinakosti.

A lány, a nő, a többiek


A lány, a nő, a többiek a kortárs brit nők egymással összefonódó közösségének megindító és reményteli története, és a jelenkori Nagy-Britannia egyszerre szórakoztató és megrázó tablóképe. A sokhangú regény tizenkét szereplője nagyon eltérő életet él: Amma leszbikus színházi rendező éppen élete nagy lehetőségére, darabjának premierjére készül a Nemzeti Színházban; régi barátja, Shirley tanár, több évtizedes munka után is london egyik pénzhiányos iskolájában rekedt, egyik volt hallgatója, Carole mégis sikeres befektetési bankár lesz. Bummi takarítóként dolgozik, és nyilvánvaló eredményei ellenére aggódik, hogy lánya végképp elszakítja nigériai gyökereit. Az észak-angliai tanyán élő 93 éves GG viszont nehezen lép túl a múlt árnyékán. Míg LaTisha a három különböző férfitól származó gyerekének keresi a megfelelő apát, Megan a nemi identitásában bizonytalan, és a közösségi médiában próbál válaszokat találni. Csupa felejthetetlen karakter, akik számos ponton keresztezik egymás életét, a rokonságban, szomszédságban, vagy éppenséggel a különböző problémákban, a szexualitástól a társadalmi helyzetig. Evaristo rendkívüli érzékenységgel mutatja meg egy emberi élet sokféleségét, sokszínűségét és hogy senki nem fekete-fehér – még akkor sem, ha azt történetesen mi gondoljuk annak. Azokra a dolgokra emlékeztet bennünket, amik összekötnek minket az ismerőseinkkel és a szomszédainkkal, még azokban az időkben is, amikor arra biztatnak bennünket, hogy inkább forduljunk el egymástól.

The Emperor's Babe


'Dazzling', 'brilliant', 'streetwise', 'sassy', 'audacious' - "The Emperor's Babe" has been hailed as the one of the most original novels of 2001. Meet Zuleika: sassy girl about town, hellraiser, bored ex-child-bride in Londinium, AD 211. In the place (and time) to be ...through the bustling, hustling city, we follow Zuleika, feisty and precocious daughter of Sudanese immigrants. Married off to a rich, fat, absent Roman, she is stranded in luxurious neglect, until, one day the Emperor himself, comes to town, bringing with him not just love - but danger ...Funky and funny, sexy and moving, this novel, in verse is a triumph of imaginative writing - and of sheer lyrical and emotional vitality.

Blonde Roots


FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF GIRL, WOMAN, OTHERLONGLISTED FOR THE ORANGE PRIZE FOR FICTION 2009 WINNER OF THE ORANGE YOUTH PANEL AWARD 2009 FINALIST FOR THE HURSTON WRIGHT LEGACY AWARD 2010'A phenomenal book. It is so ingenious and so novel. Think The Handmaid's Tale meets Noughts and Crosses with a bit of Jonathan Swift and Lewis Carroll thrown in. This should be thought of as a feminist classic.' Women's Prize for Fiction PodcastWelcome to a world turned upside down. One minute, Doris, from England, is playing hide-and-seek with her sisters in the fields behind their cottage. The next, someone puts a bag over her head and she ends up in the hold of a slave-ship sailing to the New World . . .In this fantastically imaginative inversion of the transatlantic slave trade - in which 'whytes' are enslaved by black people - Bernardine Evaristo has created a thought-provoking satire that is as accessible and readable as it is intelligent and insightful. Blonde Roots brings the shackles and cries of long-ago barbarity uncomfortably close and raises timely questions about the society of today.'A bold and brilliant game of counterfactual history. Evaristo keep[s] her wit and anger at a spicy simmer throughout' Daily Telegraph'So human and real. Re-imagines past and present with refreshing humour and intelligence' Guardian'A brilliant satire whose flashes of comedy make the underlying tragedy all the more poignant' Scotland on Sunday

She knows how to get by. Until one day she catches the eye of the most powerful man on earth, the Roman Emperor, and her trouble really starts...Silver-tongued and merry-eyed, this is a story in song and verse, a joyful mash-up of today and yesterday.

Manifesto


'Promises to make for one of 2021's must-read memoirs' StylistThe powerful, urgent manifesto on never giving up from Booker prize-winning trailblazer, Bernardine EvaristoIn 2019, Bernardine Evaristo became the first black woman to win the Booker Prize since its inception fifty years earlier - a revolutionary landmark for Britain. Her journey was a long one, but she made it, and she made history.Manifesto is her intimate and fearless account of how she did it. From a childhood steeped in racism from neighbours, priests and even some white members of her own family, to discovering the arts through her local youth theatre; from stuffing her belongings into bin bags, always on the move between temporary homes, to exploring many romantic partners both toxic and loving, male and female, and eventually finding her soulmate; from setting up Britain's first theatre company for Black women in the eighties to growing into the trailblazing writer, theatre-maker, teacher, mentor and activist we see today - Bernardine charts her rebellion against the mainstream and her life-long commitment to community and creativity. And, through the prism of her extraordinary experiences, she offers vital insights into the nature of race, class, feminism, sexuality and ageing in modern Britain.Bernardine Evaristo's life story is a manifesto for courage, integrity, optimism, resourcefulness and tenacity. It's a manifesto for anyone who has ever stood on the margins, and anyone who wants to make their mark on history. It's a manifesto for being unstoppable.'Bernardine Evaristo is one of those writers who should be read by everyone, everywhere' Elif Shafak'Bernardine Evaristo is one of Britain's best writers, an iconic and unique voice, filled with warmth, subtlety and humanity.
