Candice Carty-Williams recommends
Girl, Woman, Other (2019)
"There is an astonishing uniqueness to Bernardine Evaristo’s writing, but especially showcased in Girl, Woman, Other. How she can speak through twelve different people and give them each such distinct and vibrant voices is astonishing. I loved it. So much."
Love in Colour (2020)
"Perfection in short story form, I am in love with every single word Bolu Babalola has written. So rarely is love expressed this richly, this vividly, or this artfully."
Open Water (2021)
Caleb Azumah Nelson
"A beautiful and powerful novel about the true and sometimes painful depths of love."
Hope and Glory (2022)
"Jendella Benson has drawn such a compelling world that Hope and Glory, the book and the characters themselves, stayed with me long after I'd turned the final pages."
