A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing





This is shortlisted for the Bailey's Women's Prize for fiction. Eimear McBride's debut tells, with astonishing insight and in brutal detail, the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. Not so much a stream of consciousness, as an unconscious railing against a life that makes little sense, and a shocking and intimate insight into the thoughts, feelings and chaotic sexuality of a vulnerable and isolated protagonist, to read A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing is to plunge inside its narrator's head, experiencing her world first-hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation. Touching on everything from family violence to sexuality and the personal struggle to remain intact in times of intense trauma, McBride writes with singular intensity, acute sensitivity and mordant wit. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is moving, funny - and alarming. It is a book you will never forget. Winner of the inaugural Goldsmiths Prize, shortlisted for the Folio Prize, the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction, the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award, and longlisted for the Desmond Elliot Prize.
