Bernardine Evaristo & Linda Grant

Story of our Times
Novels reveal insights into the mood of the places they were written. Not surprisingly, Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other and Linda Grant’s A Stranger City feel timely, as Britain finds itself in flux. Evaristo’s book is a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood, while Grant’s is a meditation on London as a place of exile or expulsion. It seems, more than ever, that ‘home’ is a complex, contested idea.
