    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    Winner of The Booker Prize 2019

    Shortlisted for The Women's Prize for Fiction 2020

    The Sunday Times best seller

    This is Britain as you've never heard it.

    This is Britain as it has never been told.

    From Newcastle to Cornwall, from the birth of the 20th century to the teens of the 21st, Girl, Woman, Other follows a cast of 12 characters on their personal journeys through this country and the last hundred years. They're each looking for something - a shared past, an unexpected future, a place to call home, somewhere to fit in, a lover, a missed mother, a lost father, even just a touch of hope....

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The actress Anna-Maria Nabirye projects the characters superbly: she has a full, low timbre and a powerful directness." (The Times)

    "Masterful...A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain." (Elle)  

    "Ambitious, flowing and all-encompassing, an offbeat narrative that'll leave your mind in an invigorated whirl...[It] unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond." (Stylist

    Audio Book inadequate

    I need to emphasize my respect and honour to the writer book and the performer of the audio book. However the audio book fails to carry the worth and essence of the vision of the book. The book tells the stories of 12 persons whose voices are less heard in literature. I hoped the stories would be told differently too. I particularly did not like the performers wrong pronunciations of Kwame A. Appiah's name and the Nigerian and carribean accents were not adequate. As the book advocates for voices to be heard, it would have been nice to get 12 persons who could do this and make the book come as alive as possible. I am sorry also is my comment comes accross as harsh but I really think the liberation of voices and also providing the platform for all voices would have helped in projecting the honor of this book.

    Mindblowingly good!

    These stories of women who are all woven together, but offer such radically different insights were a revelation to me. I feel like I of understood questions of feminism and black identity in completely new ways. Highly recommended!

    Perfekter Fit

    Ein sehr zu empfehlen der Roman, der zurecht den Booker Preis 2019 gewonnen hat. Trotz einiger stereotypen Charaktere macht es Spaß zu erkennen, wie sich die Figuren und ihre Geschichten am Ende zu einem Ganzen zusammenfügen.

    Narration could be improved

    very interesting book but the narration makes it hard to distinguish between chapters & perspective

    my new favourite book!

    I cried and laughed and was moved! i think I will buy the book so I can read it instead of "just" listening. Although I loved to hear the different accents

    so many lives

    I loved the storytelling. However I had to start over multiple times because there are so many characters that I couldn't follow each story in the beginning. Listening to it more than an hour at a time I got finally pulled in and enjoyed it a lot.
