This is a first edition, first print of GIRL, WOMAN, OTHER by Bernadine Evaristo. It was published by HAMISH HAMILTON in 2019. This novel is shortlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize. It is signed by Evaristo on the title page.
I would dearly love to see either this or Shafak win the 2019 Booker, but I have this horrible feeling that "Ducks is going to win. :(
Here is a synopsis -
Teeming with life and crackling with energy - a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood
Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles 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 vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
