A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is a stunning examination of the relationship between a young woman and her brother, and the deep long-lasting effect of his childhood brain tumour. Written from within her complicated mind, the novel is a touching and intimate vision of the thoughts, fears and railing anger of a frustrated, terrified young woman. Sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes beautiful, reading it is an entirely revelatory experience.

Winner of the 2014 Bailey’s Prize for Women’s Fiction,¬†A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing¬†is a literary masterpiece.
