Eimear McBride is a writer of remarkable power and originality.--The Times Literary Supplement

An instant classic.--The Guardian

It's hard to imagine another narrative that would justify this way of telling, but perhaps McBride can build another style from scratch for another style of story. That's a project for another day, when this little book is famous.--London Review of Books

In edgy, hazy, stream-of-consciousness prose, Eimear McBride transports you directly into her narrator's mind and heart, making this experimental, award-winning novel totally unforgettable.--Bustle

A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is simply a brilliant book--entirely emotionally raw and at the same time technically astounding. Her prose is as haunting and moving as music, and the love story at the heart of the novel--between a sister and brother--as true and wrenching as any in literature. This is a book about everything: family, faith, sex, home, transcendence, violence, and love. I can't recommend it highly enough.--Elizabeth McCracken

McBride's A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is a game-changer,
