"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.… (mer)

Everything I want to say about this wonderful novel has already been very well said in other reviews which I have thumbs-upped. All I will add is that for this naturally flowing, lovely, lovingly created work: 5 stars is not too much and actually nowhere near enough. ( )

Twaalf personages van kleur zijn op zoek naar iets. Op bijzondere wijze worden zij samengebracht in dit verhaal

Wenn Diversität zu Klischees kondensiert. ( )

My new favourite book. I'm a itchy reader, so the short paragraphs with no sentences suited my skimming style. The interlinked stories/lives are great. ( )

Although uppercase letters are used for proper nouns, titles, and a few other words for emphasis, this novel doesn't employ capital letters at the beginning of sentences, and there is no punctuation marking the end of sentences. The author, Bernardine Evaristo, considers her writing style to be experimental and free-flowing. It certainly has rhythm and reads like poetry—or possibly as tweets. The open and barrier-free writing works well for this multidimensional story. There are twelve main characters, most of whom identify as British and female. Amma, who is introduced first, ends up having some connection to all of the others, even though each person's tale, to some degree, stands alone.

Through individuals' narratives, backstories, relationships, and events, the novel depicts racism, sexism, misogyny, and misandry. Additionally, we get a glimpse of the struggles of immigrants and the class system in Britain and elsewhere. Through much of the book, intergenerational issues are discussed as well as the intersection of identities. Among other controversial societal matters, Evaristo weaves conflicts associated with adoption, abuse, and abandonment through characters' stories. And there are quite a few statements about the educational system—mostly about British schooling but are relatable to contemporary American conflicts. It is amazing how many successful subplots and themes are intertwined to challenge our beliefs about human nature.

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
