Winner of the 2019 Booker Prize.
Teeming with energy, humour and heart, a love song to black Britain told by twelve very different women.
Teeming with life and crackling with energy, told through many distinctive voices, this novel follows the lives 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 sparklingly contemporary, Girl, Woman, Other is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times- celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
