Solution:
Option(B) is correct

A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing is the debut novel of Eimear McBride.

The book was first published in 2013 by Galley Beggar Press of Norwich, England, after being rejected by numerous other publishing companies.

It has won several awards including the Kerry Group Irish Novel of the Year, the Goldsmiths Prize, the Desmond Elliott Prize, the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.

A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing" (Coffee House), tells a fall-and-fall story that, especially in a traditional Irish setting, can seem familiar fictional material: a departed father, a pious, abusive mother, an errant and blasphemous daughter, a predatory uncle, a death in the family, a God-soaked household busy with meddling priests and vain prayer.
