Product description

Review

Give [Evaristo] more prizes! All the prizes! It has the pace of a whistle stop tour and yet it seems no detail of the myriad of lives we encounter is missed. -- Graham Norton via Twitter

If you haven't discovered [Evaristo] yet, I urge you to read all and any of her books. Devoured one a day already and ordered more. Hilarious, compassionate, moving and brutally honest. -- Richard E Grant via Twitter

Beautifully interwoven stories of identity, race, womanhood, and the realities of modern Britain. The characters are so vivid, the writing is beautiful and it brims with humanity. -- Nicola Sturgeon via Twitter

Weaves through time and space with crackling originality, Vogue

Exuberant, bursting at the seams in delightful ways... Evaristo continues to expand and enhance our literary canon. If you want to understand modern day Britain, this is the writer to read, New Statesman

An exceptional book that unites poetry, social history, women's voices and beyond. Order it right now, Stylist

Evaristo's prose hums with life as characters seem to step off the page fully formed. At turns funny and sad, tender and true, this book deserves to win awards, Red

Brims with vitality, FT

With this rich composition, Evaristo deserves a toast, Literary Review

Masterful... A choral love song to black womanhood in modern Great Britain, Elle --This text refers to the paperback edition.
