Product Description

Man Booker Joint Winner 2019

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.

Girl, Woman, Other comprises the life histories and current travails of a daisy-chain of connected women, mostly of African extraction. Amma, a lesbian playwright in mid-life whose star is finally rising, used to work with Dominique until Dom met Nzira and went to live on a women’s commune in America; her best friend at school was Shirley, who her current artistic circle considers dull; her daughter, courtesy of a gay sperm donor, is called Yazz. These characters lead in turn to Bibi, who is vividly trans and butch Megan, who falls for her; so it goes on.
