McBride’s debut novel tells the story of a young woman's relationship with her brother, and the long shadow cast by his childhood brain tumour. With insight into the thoughts, feelings and chaotic sexuality of its isolated and vulnerable protagonist the book is like a railing against a life that makes little sense, it touches on family violence, sex and intense trauma but with a sensitivity and wit that makes for a moving if disturbing read.
