Book Club October 2020 - Girl, Woman, Other

Last year’s Booker Prize winner Bernardine Evaristo’s “Girl, Woman, Other” intertwines the stories of 12 characters in the UK over the course of several decades - and has been making waves specifically for shedding light on the lives of people rarely heard from in literature, specifically people of colour. Writer and fellow reader Sumitra Selvaraj joins us to dissect the book and discuss why it’s such a powerful snapshot of contemporary life, people of colour, and their histories. We wrap things up in Footnotes with a discussion on novels that experiment with form, inspired by Evaristo’s non-traditional style in “Girl, Woman, Other”.
