By Bernardine Evaristo. The eponymous Lara is a mixed-race girl raised in Woolwich, a white suburb of London, during the 60s and 70s. Her father, Taiwo, is Nigerian, and her mother, Ellen, is white British. Lara is their fourth child and we follow her journey from restricted childhood to conflicted early adulthood, and then from London to Nigeria to Brazil as she seeks to understand herself and her ancestry.

It is the story of Irish Catholics leaving generations of rural hardship behind and ascending to a rigid middle class in England; of German immigrants escaping poverty and seeking to build a new life in 19th century London; and of proud Yorubas enslaved in Brazil, free in colonial Nigeria and hopeful in post-war London. Lara explores the lives of those who leave one country in search of a better life elsewhere, but who end up struggling to be accepted even as they lay the foundations for their children and future generations.

So much of Bernadine Evaristo's work seems to be about freedom. It begins with the forms she uses. Her second verse novel, The Emperor's Babe, looks quite strict when you pick it up. It's the story of a black girl, a Numidian immigrant to ancient London, who ends up making out and mud-wrestling with Septimius Severus. Because of its classical theme, I thought I'd show off and ask her if the two-line stanzas were a tribute to Ovid's brand of elegiac couplets. She tells me that her answer to such questions is, "Why are you sitting there trying to work out what form it is; why don't you just listen to the story and enjoy it? Now she is making the transition from verse to prose.
