WINNER OF THE SAGA PRIZE 1997: a literary award for trailblazing new Black British novelists
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.
'A quietly outstanding work of fiction . . . an exemplary novel' Bernardine Evaristo
