Bernardine Evaristo: Girl, Woman, Other


Not a proper review, just a short note to say … Heaven knows the Booker jury doesn’t always get it right IMHO, but wow, this time for once they absolutely did.  If you haven’t already read this, run, don’t walk to get it.  And though initially I was going to say “especially if you’re a woman (and from a minority)” — no, I’m actually going to make that, “especially if you’re a white man”.

Also, and by way of more than a minor aside, I equally highly recommend the audio version narrated by Anna-Maria Nabirye.
