The powerful, urgent manifesto on never giving up from Booker prize-winning trailblazer Bernardine Evaristo.
Bernardine Evaristo's 2019 Booker win - the first by a Black woman - was a revolutionary moment both for British culture and for her. After three decades as a trailblazing writer, teacher and activist, she moved from the margins to centre stage, taking her place in the spotlight at last. Her journey was a long one, but she made it, and she made history.
Manifesto is Bernardine Evaristo's intimate and inspirational no-holds-barred account of how she did it, refusing to let any barriers stand in her way. She charts her creative rebellion against the mainstream and her life-long commitment to the imaginative exploration of 'untold' stories. And drawing deeply on her own experiences, she offers a vital contribution to current conversations around social issues such as race, class, feminism, sexuality and ageing.
This is a unique book about staying true to yourself and to your vision. It's about how to be unstoppable - in your craft, your work, your life. It is Bernardine Evaristo's manifesto for never giving up.

Inspiring memories from a brillant writer
Oh nothing more inspiring than a life well lived, passions strongly followed, and forgiveness coming from experience. I am so glad that Ms. Evaristo can teach us, laugh with us, and take us on the journey to forgive our families, lovers, and ourselves. This book is very different from what I expected, but it was as easy to love as my imagination of it.
