'This honest; engaging memoir shares such gems . . . the perfect read for anyone who dreams big' The Times and Sunday Times; Books of the Year The powerful; urgent memoir and manifesto on never giving up from Booker prize-winning trailblazer; Bernardine Evaristo In 2019; Bernardine Evaristo became the first black woman to win the Booker Prize since its inception fifty years earlier - a revolutionary landmark for Britain. Her journey was a long one; but she made it; and she made history. Manifesto is her intimate and fearless account of how she did it. From a childhood steeped in racism from neighbours; priests and even some white members of her own family; to discovering the arts through her local youth theatre; from stuffing her belongings into bin bags; always on the move between temporary homes; to exploring many romantic partners both toxic and loving; male and female; and eventually finding her soulmate; from setting up Britain's first theatre company for Black women in the eighties to growing into the trailblazing writer; theatre-maker; teacher; mentor and activist we see today - Bernardine charts her rebellion against the mainstream and her life-long commitment to community and creativity. And; through the prism of her extraordinary experiences; she offers vital insights into the nature of race; class; feminism; sexuality and ageing in modern Britain. Bernardine Evaristo's life story is a manifesto for courage; integrity; optimism; resourcefulness and tenacity. It's a manifesto for anyone who has ever stood on the margins; and anyone who wants to make their mark on history. It's a manifesto for being unstoppable. 'Raw and emotive . . . a powerful account of how Evaristo got to the top of her game - it's moving; but there's also much humour and joy' Independent 'Bernardine Evaristo is one of those writers who should be read by everyone; everywhere' Elif Shafak 'Bernardine Evaristo is one of Britain's best writers; an iconic and unique voice; filled with warmth; subtlety and humanity. Exceptional' Nikesh Shukla
