LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEY'S WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2017. SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDSMITHS PRIZE 2016. SHORTLISTED FOR THE JAMES TAIT BLACK MEMORIAL PRIZE 2017. SHORTLISTED FOR THE BORD GAIS IRISH NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2016. The vibrant energy of 1990s London. A year of passion and discovery. The anxiety and intensity of new love. 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 big 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 the light in love.

Author Choice

One of the most fearless and subversive writers working today, McBride tells the story of a young Irish drama student’s arrival in London, her eager sexual exploration and conflicted love for an older actor. The combination of narrative interiority and innovative prose creates a deeply moving, intimate reading experience.
