Black Britain: Writing Back series, curated by Bernadine Evaristo

This series is curated by Bernadine Evaristo, whose novel Girl, Woman, Other won the Booker Prize in 2019. The aim is to introduce readers to important and diverse black British writers and their experiences.


Minty Alley was written in 1928 and set in Trinidad and is a humorous novel about class.


Bernard and the Cloth Monkey is set in the late 1990s and explores the past and legacy of a dysfunctional family.
