One of Britain’s most exciting and original authors, Bernardine Evaristo is back with a new novel that teems with life and celebrates voices so often overlooked in Western literature.

Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of 12 very different characters—mostly women black and British—telling the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.

Join Evaristo as she discusses this decade-spanning novel that examines the rich inner lives of a variety of women, ranging from orphans to young brides, and fierce queens to insecure university students.
