Event 326

Bernardine Evaristo and Margaret Busby talk to Rosie Goldsmith

Fictions: Polyphony

Virtual venue: Hay Festival Foundation Stage

Evaristo’s fabulous Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve 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. Evaristo also appears in Busby’s New Daughters of Africa: An International Anthology of Writing by Women of African Descent.
