Beautifully told interconnected stories of 12 women - most of them black British women - as they move through different decades, experiences, choices and just learning how to 'be'. This one brings up all the feels, plus questions and ponderings about how race and feminism have evolved over time. Winner of the Booker Prize 2019.
Grace is a Victorian orphan dreaming of the mysterious African father she will never meet. Winsome is a young Windrush bride, recently arrived from Barbados. Amma is the fierce queen of her 1980s squatters' palace. Morgan, who used to be Megan, is blowing up on social media, the newest activist-influencer on the block. Twelve very different people, mostly black and female, more than a hundred years of change, and one sweeping, vibrant, glorious portrait of contemporary Britain. Bernardine Evaristo presents a gloriously new kind of history for this old country: ever-dynamic, ever-expanding and utterly irresistible.
