Booker-Winning Novel ‘Girl, Woman, Other’ Screen Rights Won By ‘The Constant Gardener’ Producer Potboiler

Potboiler Television, the small-screen wing of Gail Egan and Andrea Calderwood’s UK production house, has won rights to Bernardine Evaristo’s Booker-winning novel Girl, Woman, Other.

The book, published last year, made Evaristo the first black woman ever to win the Booker Prize. It stayed on the Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller List for nine consecutive weeks and was the second-best-selling literary fiction hardback of 2019. It has recently been long listed for the 2020 Women’s Prize for Fiction.

It tells the story of modern Britain through the voices of twelve very different people – mostly women, mostly black – who call it home.
