Staff Reviews

Based on the true story of the kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria, Girl by Edna O’Brien has some shocking scenes. I felt that O’Brien didn’t dwell so much on the horrors that the girls endured though, as so many books about this event do. Instead, she explored the difficult healing and recovery of the narrator, Maryam. Thwarted and abetted by others, Maryam has a long journey to safety that is both heartbreaking and at the same time hopeful. I have admired O’Brien’s short stories. Girl has the same gorgeous writing—and shows the author’s ability to mine a character’s emotion—that I’ve seen in the shorter works.
