Eimear McBride’s award-winning debut is an unforgettable novel from a major new literary talent. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing 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 first hand. This isn’t always comfortable – but it is always a revelation
