A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing

Audiobook
Winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction, the Desmond Elliot Prize, the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year Award and the Goldsmiths Prize. Eimear McBride's award-winning debut novel tells the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. It is 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 at first hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation. "A virtuosic debut: subversive, passionate, and darkly alchemical." ELEANOR CATTON, author of The Luminaries "Eimear McBride is that old fashioned thing, a genius, in that she writes truth-spilling, uncompromising and brilliant prose." Anne Enright
