Eimear McBride reads from A Girl is Half-formed Thing

www.amazon.co.uk/A-Girl-Is-Half-formed-Thing/dp/0571317162/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399566780&sr=8-1&keywords=a+girl+is+a+half+formed - WINNER OF 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.
