The blistering non-fiction debut from the author of the critically acclaimed A Girl is a Half-formed Thing *As heard on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour* 'A fearless, interrogative work ... A fierce and fascinating manifesto in McBride's persuasive prose' Sinead Gleeson 'There is something very exciting about contemplating a future for women where our disagreements about how best to live don't translate into weakness and division' Megan Nolan, New Statesman Here, Eimear McBride unpicks the contradictory forces of disgust and objectification that control and shame women. From playground taunts of 'only sluts do it' but 'virgins are frigid', to ladette culture, and the arrival of 'ironic' porn, via Debbie Harry, the Kardashians and the Catholic church - she looks at how this prejudicial messaging has played out in the past, and still surrounds us today. In this subversive essay, McBride asks - are women still damned if we do, damned if we don't? How can we give our daughters (and sons) the unbounded futures we want for them? And, in this moment of global crisis, might our gift for juggling contradiction help us to find a way forward? 'A satisfying feminist polemic' Susie Orbach 'Remarkable' Scotsman 'Eimear McBride is that old fashioned thing, a genius' Guardian

A fearless, interrogative work that speaks so much to structural inequality and misogyny. A fierce and fascinating manifesto in McBride's persuasive prose -- Sinead Gleeson A satisfying feminist polemic -- Susie Orbach * Guardian * A fierce, clear-eyed examination of the myriad ways in which women are objectified ... remarkable -- Stuart Kelly * Scotsman * Formidable -- Hayley Maitland * Vogue * An invigorating call to refuse the disgust directed at women * Herald * McBride is a very skilful prose stylist and is indubitably right to be incensed at the double standards and sheer prejudice of our culture * iPaper * Something Out of Place is an erudite contribution to that growing impulse in contemporary nonfiction: to cast one's testimony out into the void in the hopes that another will answer, and then another and another, and that each will be as exactingly executed, as deeply nuanced as the one preceding it * Irish Times * Praise for Eimear McBride: Eimear McBride is that old fashioned thing, a genius, in that she writes truth-spilling, uncompromising and brilliant prose * Guardian *
