At Electric Lit Ali tagged nine favorite books about interracial relationships, including:
Girl Woman Other by Bernardine Evaristo

Booker-prize winner Girl Woman Other is a tour de force. The novel is a brilliant exploration of today’s Britain through a cast of Black women that force you to accept their depth. These Black women are in all kinds of relationships, with men, with women, with themselves. These tight vignettes are intimate and intense, coming together in a vivid ending. A worthy winner.
