"Girl, Woman, Other is a celebration of the diversity of Black British experience. Moving, hopeful, and inventive, this extraordinary novel is a vivid portrait of the state of contemporary Britain and the legacy of Britain's colonial history in Africa and the Caribbean. The twelve central characters of this multi-voiced novel lead vastly different lives: Amma is a newly acclaimed playwright whose work often explores her black lesbian identity; her old friend Shirley is a teacher, jaded after decades of work in London's funding-deprived schools; Carole, one of Shirley's former students, works hard to earn a degree from Oxford and becomes an investment banker; Carole's mother Bummi works as a cleaner and worries about her daughter's lack of rootedness despite her obvious achievements. From a nonbinary social media influencer to a 93-year-old woman living on a farm in Northern England, these unforgettable characters also intersect in shared aspects of their identities, from age to race to sexuality to class. Sparklingly witty and filled with emotion, centering voices we often see othered, and written in an innovative and fast-moving form that borrows from poetry, Girl, Woman, Other is a polyphonic and richly textured social novel that reminds us of everything that connects us to our neighbors, even in times when we are encouraged to be split apart"--Provided by publisher.… (mais)

I truly did not expect to like this book, but I really enjoyed it. It was refreshing and interesting to read with its free verse. The story follows 12 women as they go through life, exploring their relationships, their sexuality, their families. It discusses feminism and their male friends/spouses response to it. It shows women as young girls, young adults, middle-aged women, and elderly women, along with their struggles, hardships, and triumphs. I loved how these women’s lives entwined, and how they each discovered themselves. ( )

Book on CD performed by Anna-Maria Nabirye


Evaristo’s collection of short stories earned her the 2019 Booker Prize, the first black woman to be so honored. As the title implies, the stories all focus on women and girls from childhood to old age and are primarily set in current-day Britain.

Evaristo populates the book with a wide variety of unforgettable characters: a jaded teacher, a lesbian playwright, a nonbinary social media influencer, an ancient matriarch still living on her family’s farm. The stories are loosely interconnected, and the structure reminds me a little of Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge, though there is no central character that is in every tale.

I am a fan of the short story format and loved the way Evaristo managed to give us a complete picture of these women’s lives using this form. The novel is structured in chapters, with each chapter having three characters’ stories, though all three characters appear in each other’s narratives. I cheered for most of these women (as in real life, there are some stinkers here that I was happy to see go), and found the epilogue, which ties up one story arc beautifully, very satisfying.

I can hardly wait for my F2F book club discussion!

I listened to the audio performed by Anna-Maria Nabirye, who does a marvelous job. She has a lot of characters to deal with, virtually all of them women, and she managed it quite well. Her narration was seamless, and I was never confused about who was speaking. I did have a copy of the text handy, and it is written in a style that eliminates capitalization and punctuation; it has an appearance of poetry on some pages. I don’t think this would have bothered me at all had I read the text, but for those who find non-traditional styles problematic, try the audio. You won’t regret it. ( )

I thought this book was quite an accomplishment. It is a novel but reads more like a collection of twelve stories, each about an individual woman who is directly or indirectly connected to the others. It is the depth and development of these characters that is so impressive. They are all so different and unique and she gives them full, complex lives and an abundance of personality. It took me a bit of time to warm up to the structure of the book but once I did, I just enjoyed and appreciated it more and more as I read. A must read for those that love a character driven book.

Er is al zoveel geschreven over dit boek, ik ga er niet zoveel aan toevoegen. Mij sprak het vooral documentair en caleidoscopisch karakter van de roman aan: het introduceert je als lezer tot het levensverhaal van 12 verschillende vrouwen in Engeland, uit verschillende tijdsperioden. Ze hebben gemeen dat ze allemaal een gekleurde (meestal Afrikaanse) achtergrond hebben, dat ze zowel rassen- als gender-discriminatie hebben moeten ondergaan, maar ook dat ze elk op hun manier hun weg hebben gezocht en gevonden. Evaristo lijkt daarmee de goedkope politiek correcte tour op te gaan, maar dat is maar gedeeltelijk zo: gelukkig zit er in elk van de verhalen voldoende relativering, en zelfs milde kritiek. Ze toont bijvoorbeeld hoe het feminisme salonfähig is geworden, geleidelijk ook in het establishment is opgenomen, en dat zelfs “Wimmins Land” geen paradijs is; idem dito voor problematieken als LGTB+. Daarmee biedt een zeker een heel boeiend tijdsportret en sociaal document aan.

Maar literair is deze roman heel ongelijkmatig. Evaristo schrijft nauwelijks in volzinnen, eerder in elkaar opvolgende statements, die het documentair-journalistieke karakter van het boek nog meer in de verf zetten. Door het hoge tempo blijven de portretten ook nogal aan de oppervlakte: de personages zijn zeker geen bordkartonnen figuren, maar ze hadden voor mijn part nog iets meer psychologische uitdieping mogen krijgen. Bij sommige vrouwenstemmen (zoals de jonge Yazz) spat de energie zeker ook literair van de pagina’s, maar bij andere had ik moeite om mijn aandacht erbij te houden. De kruisverbindingen tussen de verschillende figuren zijn heel beperkt. De laatste hoofdstukken, waarin enkele van de vrouwen elkaar ontmoeten op een afterparty bevat interessante aanzetten tot interactie, maar wordt niet echt uitgewerkt. En de epiloog met de erg moraliserende slotzinnen is wel aandoenlijk, maar die mag je voor mijn part ronduit melig noemen. Kortom, zeker een interessant boek, dat ik graag heb gelezen, maar erg verrassend dat dit de Man Booker Prijs heeft gewonnen. ( )

I haven't enjoyed a Booker Prize winner this much in so long. A beautifully written character study of a diverse group of black women in the UK. Each chapter exuded life, both from big questions of identity to the minutiae of everyday lived experience. In addition to the ambitious range of topics addressed, Evaristo made it easy to sympathize with the focal characters despite their flaws.

The decision not to use punctuation normally (most sentences don't end with periods, just line breaks) served her story well. It made the prose feel like the smooth flow of a given character's internal monologue without delving into a convoluted stream of consciousness; this made the reader develop an even more intimate relationship with the characters' emotions and vulnerabilities.

Amma

is walking along the promenade of the waterway that bisects her city, a few early morning barges cruise slowly by

to her left is the nautical-themed footbridge with its deck-like walkway and sailing mast pylons

to her right is the bend in the river as it heads east past Waterloo Bridge towards the dome of St Paul's

she feels the sun begin to rise, the air still breezy before the city clogs up with heat and fumes

a violinist plays something suitably uplifting further along the promenade

Amma's play, The Last Amazon of Dahomey, opens at the National tonight
