Product description

Review

Mr Loverman is hilarious, poignant, clever, controversial and courageous in equal measure. Loved, loved, loved it! (Dawn French)

A brave and important story . . . I enjoyed it enormously (Jonathan Kemp, author of London Triptych)

Bernardine Evaristo can take any story from any time and turn it into something vibrating with life (Ali Smith)

An undeniably bold and energetic writer, whose world view is anything but one-dimensional (Sunday Times)

This riproaring, full-bodied riff on sex, secrecy and family is Bernardine Evaristo's seventh book. If you don't yet know her work, you should - she says things about modern Britain that no one else does (Maggie Gee Guardian)

Evaristo has a lot going on in this unusual urban romance, but beneath her careful study of race and sexuality is a beautiful love story. Not many writers could have two old men having sexual intercourse in a bedsit to a soundtrack of Shabba Ranks's Mr Loverman and save it from bad taste, much less make it sublime. But the hero of this book, and his canny creator, make everything taste just fine (Daily Telegraph)

A pacey fable about summoning both the daring and the art to live a truthful life . . . her writing simply fizzes with musical energy (Express)

A brilliant study of great characters in modern London (Independent)

Funny, brave . . . I loved Mr Loverman (Ian Thomson Spectator)

Transforms our often narrow perceptions of gay men in England . . . Comical, agonising and, ultimately, moving (Independent)

About the Author

Bernardine Evaristo is the author of seven books including three critically acclaimed verse novels, Lara, The Emperor's Babe and Soul Tourists. Mr Loverman is her second prose novel, after 2008's Blonde Roots, which was longlisted for the Orange Prize and won the Orange Prize Youth Panel Award. Evaristo's other awards include the EMMA Best Book, Arts Council Award and the Big Red Read Award. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and was awarded an MBE in 2009. She lives in London.
