Eimear McBride wrote her first novel in six months. It took nine years to find a publisher. A Girl is a Half- formed Thing won the inaugural Goldsmiths Prize and was short listed for the inaugural Folio Prize and for The Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is written as a stream of consciousness and is moving, funny, and alarming.

‘Who forgot to tell Eimear  McBride  about the crisis that we are in and about the solution to that crisis: compromise, dumb down, sell your soul?’ – Anne Enright
