Winner--Baileys Women's Prize for FictionA Girl Is a Half-formed Thing by Eimear McBride has just scooped this year's Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction. The chair of judges said: "An amazing and ambitious first novel that impressed the judges with its inventiveness and energy. This is an extraordinary new voice--this novel will move and astonish the reader."
McBride's novel tells the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. 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.
