Upon the announcement of the winners of the 2019 Booker Prize

The EA sends warm congratulations to Professor Bernardine Evaristo, winner of the 2019 Booker prize with Girl, Woman, Other.

Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of 12 very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.  Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.


Professor Evaristo has been a Fellow of the English Association since 2017.
