Eimear McBride. The Lesser Bohemians. Launch.

It's here. (Nearly). The much anticipated second novel by a woman considered to be one of the most important writers working today. Eimear is launching her new book, The Lesser Bohemians, at The Book Hive on 6th September and you are invited to come along and celebrate...

‘So sit we. Separate. Years apart while the night turns itself, in his forty watt, into waste and into past. I tip tongue to questions but he is closed eyes and I know what I did. Here’s the room though, where done though. Remember everything.'

An eighteen-year-old Irish girl arrives in London to study drama and falls passionately, dangerously in love with an older actor. This older man has a dark past that the young girl is unprepared for. The young girl has her own more recent past to reckon with. Unnamed at the start, this is her story and their story. The Lesser Bohemians is about sexual passion. It is about innocence and the loss of it. At once epic and exquisitely intimate, it is a celebration of love: the way it can both destroy and create. 

Join us - and Eimear - to mark the start of this next stage in her extraordinary career.

Later Event: October 6
An evening with Tommy Wieringa
