Evaristo’s new book is a manifesto on never giving up

The powerful manifesto on never giving up from Booker prize-winning trailblazer, Bernardine Evaristo is definitely a book you should add to your to-read list.

With her novel ‘Girl, Woman, Other’, in 2019, Evaristo became the first Black woman to win the Booker Prize – a revolutionary landmark for Britain. Her journey was a long one, but she made it. Evaristo’s newest book ‘Manifesto on Never Giving Up’ is an honest, intimate and inspirational account of her 40-year journey to the top table of the UK’s literary scene.

Manifesto Manifesto is her intimate and fearless account of how she did it. From a childhood steeped in racism from neighbors and priests, even from white members of her own family, to discovering the arts through her local youth theatre; from setting up Britain’s first theatre company for Black women in the 80s to growing into the trailblazing writer, theatre-maker, teacher, mentor and activist we see today – Evaristo 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 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.

Award-winning Turkish-British writer Elif Shafak wrote about Evaristo that she is “one of those writers who should be read by everyone, everywhere”.
