really liked it

With her third novel, Ottessa Moshfegh fulfils her early promise and confirms herself as a major writer of our time. This darkly comic tale follows the sleepy adventures of a young, beautiful and rich but miserable New Yorker who embarks on a drug-fuelled sabbatical at the dawn of the 21st century. I particularly enjoyed the unnamed heroine's encounters with her eccentric shrink and needy best friend. Moshfegh's mischievous delight in the morbid and ugly details of everyday life powers her absurd yet visionary narrative.
