Bernardine Evaristo’s first fully-prose novel BLONDE ROOTS (Penguin UK 2008/USA 2009) is an original and often satirical take on slavery in which Africans are the masters and Europeans are their slaves. The protagonist is a captured white woman from Europa who tries to escape slavery in the United Kingdom of Great Ambossa.

‘Novelists are irresistably drawn to the ‘what if’ game…But it has seldom been done on the scale of Bernardine Evaristo’s astonishing new novel which takes one of the great horrors of history and turns it on its head.’

– The Times
