A Girl is a Half-formed Thing
This is Eimear McBride's debut novel. Written in six months when she was 27, it was rejected by the publishers to whom she submitted it, but, nine years later, was accepted by Galley Beggar Press, and won several literary awards. A Girl is a Half-formed Thing was adapted for the stage by Annie Ryan, founder of The Corn Exchange. First produced in Dublin in 2014, the play won three awards at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
