Product description

Review

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
