About this Event

Eimear McBride: Why the Novel Matters

Eimear McBride is the author of two novels: The Lesser Bohemians (winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, shortlisted for the International Dublin Literary Award) and A Girl is a Half-formed Thing (winner of the Women’s Prize, Goldsmiths Prize, Irish Novel of the Year and others). In 2017/2018 she was the inaugural Creative Fellow at the Beckett Research Centre, University of Reading. The resultant short plays, Mouthpieces, were recorded and broadcast by RTE Radio. A recent TLS survey of the best British and Irish contemporary writers placed her in the top 10. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and lives in London.

The evening will conclude with the announcement of the shortlist for the 2019 Goldsmiths Prize.
