More About A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing by Eimear Mcbride
 
 
 
Overview
The dazzling, fearless debut novel that won the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and the book the New York Times hails as a future classic .
In scathing, furious, unforgettable prose, Eimear McBride tells the story of a young girl s devastating adolescence as she and her brother, who suffers from a brain tumor, struggle for a semblance of normalcy in the shadow of sexual abuse, denial, and chaos at home. Plunging readers inside the psyche of a girl isolated by her own dangerously confusing sexuality, pervading guilt, and unrelenting trauma, McBride s writing carries echoes of Joyce, O Brien, and Woolf. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is a revelatory work of fiction, a novel that instantly takes its place in the canon."
