Long acknowledged and admired as a “writer’s writer”, 2019 saw Evaristo become the author everyone was talking about with her eighth novel Girl, Woman, Other, an ambitious novel in 12 voices that dazzled critics and readers.

wake of Brexit and the international #BlackLivesMatter movement, Girl, Woman, Other spoke to a national crisis of identity, and the urgent necessity of greater access and representation for people of colour. The “revolutionary moment” (Guardian) of the Booker win was the culmination of a long literary career, during which Evaristo has consistently shared her richly distinctive, endlessly innovative voice. She has since used her platform to advocate for a better, more inclusive publishing business, and a more equal society. For this and more, she is The British Book Awards’ Author of the Year.
