"In Girl, Woman, Other, Bernardine Evaristo traces the histories of 12 different characters in the U.K. over more than 100 years. With each new woman comes a distinctive perspective on feminism, race and class. There’s Amma, whose taste of mainstream success as a playwright and theater director prompts her to question whether she’s betrayed her anti-establishment roots; Carole, who tries to hide her working-class, immigrant background from her peers at an elite university; and Morgan, a non-binary hero worshipped by a legion of online fans. While the stories within it are largely self-contained, Evaristo’s Booker Prize-winning novel layers the women’s voices to offer piercing insights into black British female identity across generations."[Time.com] You can read more about it here.
