Winner of the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year 2014 Winner of The Desmond Elliot Prize 2014 Winner of the inaugural Goldsmiths Prize 2013 Winner of the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction 2014 Shortlisted for the inaugural Folio Prize 2014 A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing is an unforgettable novel from a major new literary talent. 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. The author's spellbinding reading illuminates every nuance of the text with feeling and sympathy. The listener enters the narrator's head, experiencing her world at first hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation.

I nearly didnt stick with this book past the shock of the style of writing but it is one of the most amazing and disturbing books I have read for long time
