Activist, academic and award-winning writer Bernardine Evaristo has explored both heritage and modern life in her considerable body of work, shedding new light on what it means to be British. Longlisted for the Booker Prize, her exuberant eighth novel Girl, Woman, Other follows the interconnected stories of a group of black British women over a century. Her work raises timeless questions about feminism and race, bringing to life with humour and sensitivity the shared experiences that make us all, to quote the book’s dedication, ‘members of the human family’. ‘If you want to understand modern day Britain, this is the writer to read.’ New Statesman
In conversation with Preti Taneja, writer, broadcaster, academic and Festival Patron
