Brooks Book of the Month - September 2017

The Lesser Bohemians - Eimear McBride


“An eighteen-year-old Irish girl arrives in London to study drama and falls violently in love with an older actor. While she is naive and thrilled by life in the city city, he is haunted by demons, and the clamorous relationship that ensues risks undoing them both. At once epic and exquisitely intimate, The Lesser Bohemians is a celebration of the dark and light of love.”


'There’s an openness, an inclusivity, a disctinct lack of God-almightyness, that makes reading her such a pleasure... A writer for whom language is an end not a means, a beginning not an end.’

Jeanette Winterson,

New York Times Book Review.
