Girl, Woman, Other

Girl, Woman, Other is a novel by Bernardine Evaristo.

Bernardine Evaristo

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... (From Penguin Random House)

Girl, Woman, Other co-won the 2019 Booker Prize.
