A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing

by Eimear McBride - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571317165 | ISBN 10: 0571317162

WINNER OF THE 2014 BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
 
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.
 
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 at first hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation.
