Product description


"Razor-sharp short stories." (Zadie Smith)

"Moshfegh is consistently as sparky and gripping as she is inventive… She could become one of the most outstanding US writers of her generation." (Peter Carty i)

"The characters in this collection are an unlovely bunch but make for an irresistible read… She writes terrific, attention-grabbing openings, and impactful last lines that don’t strain for a lapidary effect. Her damaged-girl deadpan snark is second to none, but she inhabits other character types with ease." (Christopher Taylor Financial Times)

"She can really write and has a pitch-black sense of humour." (Phil Baker Sunday Times)

"Moshfegh’s writing is cinematic – vivid, immediate." (Gwendoline Riley Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description

An electrifying, prizewinning short story collection from the Booker-shortlisted author of Eileen
