"A prose-poetry hybrid that explores the nature of Britishness and race through the stories of 12 women"
Financial Times
"a novel of intersecting London lives"
The Sunday Times
"Banality as a radical act"
Times Literary Supplement
"Bernardine Evaristo fillets race and politics in Britain in an innovative and seductive way"
Irish Times
"This wonderful novel is both a critique of the deadening limitations of language... and a celebration of its limitless possibilities"
The Daily Telegraph
"Evaristo also dramatises forms of differential treatment within communities, examining the ways her black characters see one another."
London Review of Books
"Despite the lack of conventional punctuation Girl, Woman, Other makes for fast, easy reading"
Evening Standard
"Many voices make a lively chorus in a very modern portrait of Britain,"
The Times
"There is sometimes the sense that Evaristo loves all of her sentences a little bit but few of them quite enough."
The New York Times
"Through the lives of these 12 women, Evaristo inhabits otherness and makes it sing"
The Spectator
