    Irish author Eimear McBride shot to fame with her debut novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, which tells the intimate, powerful story of a young girl’s relationship to her cancer-stricken brother as they each navigate devastating childhoods. Described by Herald Scotland as “a novel that redefines the novel” and by The New Yorker as a “blazingly original novel... fueled by fractured, adventurous language and raw emotion,” it was named Best Book of the Year by a host of publications, and won the Goldsmiths Prize in 2013 and Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2014. Don’t miss this chance to hear McBride talk about her ground-breaking work of fiction and why it took 9 years to get published.  (English英文) Buy Tickets 买票
