Eimear McBride, BBC R4 A Good Read, 18 July 2017, 4.30PM GMT

Presenter Sara Cox & Eimear McBride, author of A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing, talk about books they love with Harriett Gilbert.  Eimear recommends Suite for Barbara Loden by Nathalie Léger, in which a French researcher tries to write a biography of the film actress Barbara Loden. She's now nearly forgotten despite being the first woman to write, direct and star in her own feature film, Wanda, which won the International Critics Award at the 1970 Venice Film Festival.
