Faber snaps up brutal Girl from O’Brien

Faber has signed a "brutal" story of incarceration, horror and hunger by Edna O’Brien.

Editor Lee Brackstone, who acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to Girl from Caroline Michel at PFD, said: "In Girl, Edna once again proves herself to be one of our most compassionate, stylish and fearless novelists.

"In her ninth decade, she’s producing the greatest work of her staggering career.

"There is no more urgent writer working today."
