Her debut novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing took nine years to publish and subsequently received the Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction, Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year, the Goldsmiths Prize, Desmond Elliot Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.

Her short fiction has appeared in Dubliners 100, The Long Gaze Back and on Radio 4. She occasionally reviews for the Guardian, TLS, New Statesman and New York Times Book Review.

‘My writing is about finding ways to make language best express the life of the body and the life of the mind simultaneously. I’m particularly interested in sex, sexuality, women’s struggle for self-determination and modernism’s potential for pushing the conversation about these subjects forward.’
