Six top books about women working together

Sarah Davis-Goff was born and raised in Dublin. Her writing has been published in The Irish Times, The Guardian, and LitHub.

Silent City is her second novel.

At CrimeReads Davis-Goff tagged six books about women working together, including:
Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo

This Booker-winning novel, Everisto’s eighth, is a celebration of intersectional feminism; though many 12 of the women are related to each other, I include because the women work in tandem in such interesting ways – creating a theatre company or cleaning business, creating families. There’s something so rare and enriching about seeing that on a page. There’s unconditional love here despite the societal forces often working to keep the women apart.

Girl, Woman, Other is among Ore Agbaje-Williams's seven books featuring very, very complicated friendships, Cecile Pin's seven novels featuring displacement in multicultural London, and Kasim Ali's nine top books about interracial relationships.
