SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 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 'Exceptional. 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. You have to order it right now' 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 'Brims with
vitality' Financial Times SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2019
