A powerful critique of patriarchal society, anchored in comedy and wit, could be exactly your type of novel.
Winner of the 2019 Booker Prize, Girl, Woman, Other is one of the most impressive, entertaining, and enlightening books we’ve read in a long time. It follows the lives of 12 interconnected Black characters, all women or non-binary and living in Britain, each subject to their own not-so-fair share of struggles. The span of social issues it covers is monstrous, yet it does so with charm, wit, and a deep sense of humour, playing with words, space, and, importantly, Evaristo's characters. We adored every single one — and with a cast of 12, that’s no small feat.
