9780571317165: A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing
Críticas:

A virtuosic debut: subversive, passionate, and darkly alchemical. Read it and be changed. (Eleanor Catton)

Eimear McBride is that old fashioned thing, a genius, in that she writes truth-spilling, uncompromising and brilliant prose. (Anne Enright Guardian)

Ten pages in and all the bells start ringing. It explodes into your chest. (Caitlin Moran)

A life told from deep down inside, beautiful, harrowing, and ultimately rewarding the way only a brilliant work of literature can be. (Michael Chabon)

An instant classic account of Irish girlhood that has catapulted McBride into the front rank of modern fiction. ( Observer)

Eimear McBride is a writer of remarkable power and originality. (David Collard Times Literary Supplement)

A remarkable, harshly satisfying first novel. (Adam Mars-Jones London Review of Books)

It is... a narrative to read aloud as the images shatter and explode. (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing pushes the boundaries of the novel form... The broken sentences are the narrator's experience of a brutal world she is attempting to negotiate in staggers and fragments... each beautiful phrase McBride writes goes straight to the gut. (Gaby Wood Telegraph)

This singular experiment of a novel, is turning into this year's sleeper hit. ( Metro)

Addressed to her brother, the entire narrative is constructed in half-strung sentences, devoid of commas or dialogue demarcations but abounding in full-stops. This fragmented syntax is never self-conscious; rather it powerfully heightens the narrator's permanently fraught emotions and coheres into an immensely arresting novel. McBride is fully deserving of all her accolades; the question now is what she can produce next. (Pick of the paperbacks Sunday Times)

Lyrical and hard-hitting ... a beautiful and sublime novel despite the tough subject matter. (Kate Mosse Irish Times)

It is, in a single word, breathtaking. (Nicola Barker)

A novel that redefines the novel - that not only takes us on an emotionally dense rollercoaster ride through the perils of intimacy and family life, but delivers the whole extraordinary story in a syntax that is flat out new and terrifyingly and wondrously imaginative. (Kirsty Gunn Herald Scotland)

An unputdownable book. ( Daily Express)

A brutal and brilliant debut ... This book will arouse powerful emotions in anyone who accords it the respect of reading with attention. (John P O'Sullivan Sunday Times Ireland)

McBride weaves something dazzling... She set out to pick up the experimental modernist baton from James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, and she has done just that. (Paperback of the week Observer)

Eimear McBride's stunning debut pushes the boundaries of the novel form. ( Evening Standard)

You only need to read the first paragraph of McBride's debut novel to know you are reading something special. She builds up images impressionistically over paragraphs and pages, and her writing has such glorious cadence that it should be read aloud. (Fiona Wilson The Times)

There's an immediacy, an emotional directness as the narrator rails against a frustrating, unfeeling world. Brave, bold, brilliant. ( Daily Mail)

Soul-wrenchingly sad. ( Financial Times)

A Girl Is A Half-formed Thing is wild, brave, moving and darkly cryptic. (Chris Cleave)

She's firmly in the Irish modernist tradition of Beckett and Joyce, with a nod to Edna O'Brien's Country Girls, but what's so fresh and impressive are the female perspective and emotional charge she brings to a style some might have considered historical. This is a novel so emotionally overwhelming that it can be hard to finish a sentence, but also one in which each line repays thought and second reading. It almost didn't make it into print at all, but it will stay with every reader. (Justine Jordan Guardian)

A triumph of technique very much in the modernist tradition. ( Telegraph)

This is the work of a writer with the courage to reinvent the sentence as she pleases, and the virtuosity required to pull it off. (Simon Hammond Literary Review)

It truly is one of the most extraordinary things I've read in the last year. (Sam Baker Harper's Bazaar)

Eimear McBride's ferociously intense and stylistically challenging account of a young girl's coming-of-age in rural Ireland is an astonishing literary debut... bracingly alive with sardonic humour and brilliantly realised set-pieces... A remarkable achievement. (John Boland Irish Independent)

Utterly compelling... beautifully cadenced... a book of breathtaking ambition and assurance. ( Eastern Daily Press)

A bold novel. ( The Herald (Glasgow))

The author's use of language is so unique, so instantly inimitable that McBridean deserves to be an adjective ... Writing like this doesn't come about too often, and when it does it should be lauded. (Toby Lichtig New Humanist)

McBride's prose might be idiosyncratic and the narrative emotionally challenging, but this is an accomplished novel. I knocked it back in two sittings and a week later I'm still reeling. ( Listener)

A remarkable and riveting novel. ( Sydney Review of Books)

A bravura performance. ( Australian Women's Weekly)

The virtuoso violence of McBride's expression feels instinctive rather than artful, the only way to tell a story that can hardly bear to be told... A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing is a familiar Irish tale told in transfigured Irish style, a lyrical prose-poem on horror and human endurance. (Alexandra Coghlan Monthly)

'McBride's debut novel grips you from the first page and reels you in with impressive, virtuoso prose... An astonishing debut that heralds a major new literary talent. (Anne Sexton Hot Press)

McBride's Joycean inventiveness depicts the girl's entire self, the prose cutting through to her feelings, impressions, thoughts and half-thoughts. The short, choppy sentences, and the novel's bleak vision are also reminiscent of Samuel Beckett. (Joanne Hayden Sunday Post)

This is a simply brilliant book... emotionally raw and at the same time technically astounding. McBride's prose is as haunting and moving as music, and the love story at the heart of the novel - between a sister and brother - as true and wrenching as any in literature. I can't recommend it highly enough. (Elizabeth McCracken)

This powerfully intense depiction of troubled girlhood is written with uncompromising brio and fidelity. After her long wait for a publisher, McBride deserves her critical success. ( Weekend Australian)

Reseña del editor:

WINNER OF THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION

WINNER OF THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE

KERRY GROUP IRISH NOVEL OF THE YEAR AWARD

WINNER OF THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE

Eimear McBride's award-winning debut novel tells the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. It is 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 at first hand. This isn't always comfortable - but it is always a revelation.
