Product description


A masterclass in suspense., Economist

Moshfegh is one of the most original and astute young novelists working today. -- Orlando Bird, Daily Telegraph

Routinely hailed as one of the most exciting young American authors working today... Her work takes dirty realism and makes it filthier. But it is is also beautiful...the depravity of her material matched by the purity and precision of her prose. -- Lisa Allardice, Guardian

Ottessa Moshfegh's Death in Her Hands is a new kind of murder mystery... The work of a writer who is, like Henry James or Vladimir Nabokov, touched by both genius and cruelty... Like a surgeon, or a serial killer, Moshfegh flenses her characters, and her readers, until all that's left is a void. It's the amused contemplation of that void that gives rise to the dark exhilaration of her work -- its wayward beauty, its comedy, and its horror. -- Kevin Power, New Yorker

Much more than a whodunnit... This is a story about what might happen when a woman takes charge... A glorious visceral mystery... Moshfegh is as wise and wild as Ali Smith or Rebecca Solnit, and as gifted a scribe of nature as Annie Dillard or Thoreau. -- Melissa Katsoulis, The Times

Ottessa Moshfegh's postmodern whodunit...burnishes Moshfegh's claim as one of the most distinctive American writers around. -- Johanna Thomas-Corr, Observer

[Death in Her Hands] cracks open like a matryoshka doll, revealing multiple tales within... Its dark, devious portrait of the troubled psychology of a lonely, stymied woman makes a mark all of its own. -- Lucy Scholes, Financial Times

[A] brilliant off-kilter detective story... An eerie, affecting read. -- Eithne Farry, Sunday Express

Clever, dark, funny... A gripping story. -- Susannah Butter, Evening Standard

There is an unspoken fascination in those we find abhorrent and Moshfegh writes these women with wit and intrigue, treading a fine line between shocking realism and the absurd. -- Ellen Peirson-Hagger, New Statesman
