Portrait Bernardine Evaristo

Bernardine Evaristo, who in 2019 became the first Black writer to win the Booker Prize, tells of her life in her memoir that is »racy and funny, brute and touching, mostly self-deprecating and above all: uninhibitedly honest« [DIE ZEIT]. The formative influence of theatre on her as a teenager and her path to writing are as much a topic as her love life and reflections on personal development.
