內容簡介


【2019曼布克獎】
得獎作品!

2019年曼布克獎得主,充滿生機、能量爆棚,是作者為現代英國、黑人女性與物換星移的倫敦所譜寫的一首情歌。

小說中橫跨百年的12個角色,對我們傾訴他們的家人、朋友與愛人,藉此看見他們的生命與掙扎。

歡樂的複音、充滿生機的當代性,這是一部新型態的歷史,屬於我們時代的小說,熱鬧如慶典、動態不停歇、令人完全無法抗拒。

來自文學界與媒體的真心讚譽:

「爆笑、心碎、真誠。數世代的女性與他們愛與不愛的人們,展現種族、生理與心理的性別、政治、友誼、愛情、恐懼與遺憾的種種複雜情緒,還有成功帶來的併發症與親密的難度,我已經好久沒有這麼享受讀一本書了。」 - 英國黑人女作家兼詩人Warsan Shire

「非凡、具野心、流暢、涉及各種主題,不落俗套的敘事,把你的心智帶進動態的漩渦裡。它結合了詩歌、社會史、女性之聲及其他,你現在非得下單不可!」 - 《風格》雜誌(Stylist)

「小說家Evaristo不斷地擴展並加強我們的文學經典。如果你想要理解現代英國,這是你該閱讀的作家。」 - 《新政治家》雜誌

SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE 2019

Teeming with life and crackling with energy - a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood

'There is an astonishing uniqueness to all Bernardine Evaristo's writing, but especially in Girl, Woman, Other. How she can speak through twelve different people and give them each such distinct and vibrant voices... I loved it. So much' Candice Carty-Williams, author of Queenie

'Hilarious, heartbreaking & honest. Generations of women and the people they have loved and unloved - the complexities of race, sex, gender, politics, friendship, love, fear and regret. The complications of success, the difficulties of intimacy. I truly haven't enjoyed reading a book in so long' - Warsan Shire

'Didn't think I could love a Bernardine Evaristo novel more than The Emperor's Babe but with Girl, Woman, Other she might just have outdone herself' Diana Evans, author of Ordinary People

'Bernardine Evaristo can take any story from any time and turn it into something vibrating with life' Ali Smith, author of How to be both

'Bernardine Evaristo is one of those writers who should be read by everyone, everywhere. Her tales marry down-to-earth characters with engrossing story lines about identity, and the UK of today' Elif Shafak

'Witty, exhilarating and wise... Once again, Bernardine Evaristo reminds us she is one of Britain's best writers, an iconic and unique voice, filled with warmth, subtly and humanity. Exceptional' Nikesh Shukla

'Exceptional. Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl... [It] unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. You have to order it right now' Stylist

'Exuberant, bursting at the seams in delightful ways... Evaristo continues to expand and enhance our literary canon. If you want to understand modern day Britain, this is the writer to read' New Statesman

'Girl, Woman, Other is about struggle, but it is also about love, joy and imagination' Guardian

'Evaristo's prose hums with life... At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards' Red

'Masterful... Achoral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain' Elle

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.

'If you don't yet know her work, you should - she says things about modern Britain that no one else does' Maggie Gee, Guardian
