    WINNER OF THE SAGA PRIZE 1997: a literary award for trailblazing new Black British novelists

    'A quietly outstanding work of fiction . . . an exemplary novel' Bernardine Evaristo

    A shattering portrayal of family, guilt and unshakable bonds as a family's deepest secrets explosively unravel

    When Anita finally returns home to London after a long absence, everything has changed.
    Her father is dead, her mother is away, and she and her sister Beth are alone together for the first time in years.

    They share a house. They share a family. They share a past.

    Tentatively, they reach out to one another for connection, but the house echoes with words unspoken.

    Dazzling and heart-breaking, Bernard and the Cloth Monkey is a searing portrait of family, a rebellion against silence and a testament to the human capacity for survival.

    Selected by Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo, this series rediscovers and celebrates pioneering books depicting black Britain that remap the nation.
