Girl, Woman, Other

by Bernardine Evaristo

Book Club Recommendations Modern and Contemporary Fiction Sharing Diverse Voices

Girl, Woman, Other Synopsis

Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.

Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
