Eimear McBride's debut tells, with astonishing insight and in brutal detail, the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. Not so much a stream of consciousness, as an unconscious railing against a life that makes little sense, and a shocking and intimate insight into the thoughts, feelings and chaotic sexuality of a vulnerable and isolated protagonist, to read A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing is to plunge inside its narrator's head, experiencing her world first-hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation. Touching on everything from family violence to sexuality and the personal struggle to remain intact in times of intense trauma, McBride writes with singular intensity, acute sensitivity and mordant wit. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is moving, funny - and alarming.

  1. irländsk språkvirtuos
    McCruiskeen (Visby), 9 februari 2015

    Den irländska litteraturhistorien har vimlat av språkvirtuoser. Ändå ha Eimear McBride hittat en egen ton, ett eget sätt att behandla språket. Det kan ta några sidor innan man vant sig vid denna koncentrerade prosa, denna sammandragna syntax, men väl man gjort det är det inte svårt att ta till sig denna fina skildring av en ung flicka och hennes förhållande till sin äldre bror, hjärnskadad och lite egen. Läs den.
