Girl, woman, other : a novel / Bernardine Evaristo.


"Bernardine Evaristo is the winner of the 2019 Booker Prize and the first black woman to receive this highest literary honor in the English language. Girl, Woman, Other is a magnificent portrayal of the intersections of identity and a moving and hopeful story of a group of black British women that paints a vivid portrait of the state of contemporary Britain, and looks back to the legacy of Britain’s colonial history in Africa and the Caribbean. The twelve central character of this multi-voiced novel lead vastly different lives: Amma is a newly acclaimed playwright whose work often explorers her black lesbian identity; her old friend Shirley is a teacher, jaded after decades in London’s funding-deprived schools; Carole, one of Shirley’s former students, is an investment banker; Carole’s mother Bummi works as a cleaner and worries about her daughter’s lack of rootedness despite her achievements. From a nonbinary social media influencer to a ninety-three-year-old woman living on a farm in Northern England, these unforgettable character also intersect in aspects of their identities, from age to race to sexuality to class."-- Inside jacket
