Bernardine Evaristo: Tell No-One About This

Bernardine Evaristo is the author of ten books and numerous writings that span the genres of fiction, verse fiction, short fiction, non-fiction, poetry, essays, literary criticism, journalism, and radio and theatre drama. Bernardine’s novel Girl, Woman, Other won the Booker Prize in 2019.

‘I’ve been following Jacob Ross’s writing career since the 1980s when he first began to publish short story collections, and later novels, all set in the Caribbean. He’s a brilliant novelist, and one of the finest short story writers around. In 2017 he published ‘Tell No-One About This: collected short stories 1975-2017’, which shows the range of his talent. His stories are haunting, deep, sometimes shocking and always beautifully-written, dextrously spun and immersive. They are to be savoured.  Read them and discover for yourself.’
