Publisher's Summary

The breathtaking new novel from Eimear McBride, about an extraordinary, all-consuming love affair.
One night an 18-year-old Irish girl, recently arrived in London to attend drama school, meets an older man - a well-regarded actor in his own right. While she is naive and thrilled by life in the big city, he is haunted by more than a few demons, and the clamorous relationship that ensues risks undoing them both. A captivating story of passion and innocence, joy and discovery, set against the vibrant atmosphere of 1990s London over the course of a single year, The Lesser Bohemians glows with the eddies and anxieties of growing up, and the transformative intensity of a powerful new love.


What the Critics Say

Highly recommended

I almost gave up on this after a couple of chapters because of its unusual style. I'm so glad I didn't. It's wonderfully written and beautifully read. In a lovely rythmic style, it tells the love story of two damaged people as they work out how to survive.
