ABOUT THE EVENT
Eimear McBride is an Irish novelist and one of today’s most exciting writers, commended for her ‘ferocious immediacy’ and ‘hurtling, viscerally direct prose’, speaking to the reader, as she herself puts it, from ‘far back in the mind’. Her debut novel, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing (2013), received the Goldsmiths Prize, the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction and was Irish Novel of the Year. Her second novel, The Lesser Bohemians, was similarly lauded as a work of ‘coherent virtuosity… beauty, wisdom and humour’. We are delighted to welcome her to Aberdeen to talk about and read from her latest book, Strange Hotel, published in February this year.
