Quote of the day: “There is a lot of trauma in this story. I feel the trauma is somewhat countered by the incredible aliveness of the language and the acute awareness of the Girl herself. She absolutely owns her experience with genuine courage and an unapologetic sense of her own agency. Even when she is causing herself harm or terrible things are happening to her, she perseveres to find her own truth, without rancour, without self-pity.” (Annie Ryan’s ‘Foreword’ to her adaptation of Eimear McBride’s A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing)
