About the book: 

WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019

Teeming with energy, humour and heart, a love song to black Britain told by twelve very different people.

Grace is a Victorian orphan dreaming of the mysterious African father she will never meet.
 
Winsome is a young Windrush bride, recently arrived from Barbados.
 
Amma is the fierce queen of her 1980s squatters' palace.
 
Morgan, who used to be Megan, is blowing up on social media, the newest activist-influencer on the block.
 
Twelve very different people, mostly black and female, more than a hundred years of change, and one sweeping, vibrant, glorious portrait of contemporary Britain. Bernardine Evaristo presents a gloriously new kind of history for this old country: ever-dynamic, ever-expanding and utterly irresistible.
