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)

"Moshfegh’s powerful, pristine prose shines a light on the dark side of these characters […] Her endings are never happy, but they often contain hope – which can be more convincing." (Christena Appleyard Daily Mail)

"Moshfegh delights in exploring the seamy underside of life… Once encountered these characters are not easily forgotten." (Bookseller)

"An impressive study of human vulnerability and self-deception, through which the reader is guided by a cynical and darkly funny literary voice." (Nathan Smith 1843 Magazine)

"Homesick for Another World showcases her mastery." (Time Magazine (Europe))

"A perfect showcase to Moshfegh’s brilliant and sui generis mind… brilliant as was Eileen, Moshfegh is near virtuosic in short story form, and newcomers to her work would do well to begin with this collection." (Michael Barron Culture Trip)
