Bernardine Evaristo’s new novel Girl Woman Other describes the lives of twelve people – mostly women, mostly black – across the miles and down the years of the 20th century. What do their experiences have in common, and what do they tell us about our society? Neasden-born Guy Gunaratne’s first novel In Our Mad And Furious City unfolds over 48 hours on a London council estate in the aftermath of a killing. It was long-listed for the 2018 Man Booker Prize.
Bernardine and Guy will be in conversation with Sam Leith, Literary Editor of The Spectator.
